Welcome to Cheng Research Group

Our research is conducted at the convergence of two central areas of nanotechnology-nanophotonics and nanomechanics. We develop nano-electro-mechanical systems (NEMS) and nano-opto-mechanical systems (NOMS) to explore their novel properties in both classical and quantum regimes. We study the coupling and interaction between electrical, optical and mechanical degrees of freedom (electrons, photons and phonons) in nanoscale devices.
