Welcome to the Mesoscopic Physics Laboratory
Department of Physics, Colorado School of Mines

We specialize in the application of quasioptical (millimeter wave) and optical techniques for materials characterization as well as fundamental studies of wave propagation in disordered media. The latter presents a useful analog of quantum chaos. We study both natural materials, such as rocks, and artificial materials, such as photonic crystals and random dielectrics. We are also interested in the magnetic properties of metamaterials which could be exploited to create negative index materials at millimeter wave frequencies. As an example of an application, we are developing new types of nonlinear ultrasonic arrays and millimeter wave vibrometers for near-surface remote sensing (such as landmine detection).

What is mesoscopics?

What's the difference between terahertz and millimeter waves?
