Dr. Burghoff investigates new ways of generating and manipulating light, particularly at understudied wavelengths. His research blends quantum and nonlinear optoelectronics with novel computational approaches. His invention aims to produce the first compact and broadband light sources in the longwave infrared, which have the potential to allow sensing of chemical concentrations and physical dynamics in real time. This could benefit many areas of fundamental science and impact our approach to sensing, with application ranging from medical breathalyzers to greenhouse gas detection.
