Our group has broad interests in the interaction of optical, electric, and  magnetic fields with matter at small length scales. We work on new 3-D  fabrication methods, self-assembly, actuation, and propulsion. We have  observed a number of fundamental effects and are developing new  experimental techniques and instruments.
