The Joannopoulos Research Group at MIT

Welcome to the home page of our research group, headed by Professor John D. Joannopoulos of the MIT physics department.

As a part of the condensed matter theory division, we are actively researching a variety of complex systems from an ab initio standpoint. Most of our investigations fall into the broad categories of photonic crystals and optics (photons) or atomic systems and electronic structure (atoms).

We invite you to read about the members of our group, find out what papers we have written, and visit the pages describing our photonic crystal and atomic materials research.
