Minh Tuan Trinh, EECS Research Scientist, utilizes a light-conversion apparatus in EECS Professor Stephen Rand's laboratory in the ERB II building on North Campus of the University of Michigan. The research focuses on a newly-discovered family of nonlinearities that enable a radically new approach to conversion of light energy into electrical power.
