Professor Zubin Jacob has won the Defense Advanced Research Programs Agency (DARPA) Young Faculty Award 2017. The research award is for the development of new nonlinear sources of light using molecular energy transfer approaches.

Dr. Jacob's research group plans to engineer dipole-dipole interactions between nanoresonators for nonlinear light generation with an efficiency far exceeding traditional approaches.  It builds on recent work from Dr. Jacob's group on a unified approach to understand coherent and incoherent interactions between quantum emitters in nanophotonic environments. The funding amount is for $488,941 over three years.
