The Balogun Research Group is interested in basic research tailored towards understanding the physics of elastic wave and heat transport in conventional and artificial materials. Towards this goal, our group has and will continue to develop novel optical experimental tools with high spatial and temporal resolution for visualization and characterization of elastic waves and phonons in materials. We hope to leverage basic research in these areas to realize new engineering tools that leverage light-matter interaction for applications in, thermal management, reconfigurable elastic waveguides and filters, remote sensors and actuators, super-resolution imaging, and laser-assisted materials processing.
