Kimani C. Toussaint, Jr. Kimani C. Toussaint, Jr., Ph.D., Director and PI, is an Associate Professor in the Departments of Mechanical Science and Engineering, and Bioengineering, and an Affiliate Faculty in the Departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering, as well as the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He directs the laboratory for Photonics Research of Bio/nano Environments (PROBE Lab), an interdisciplinary research group which focuses on both the development of novel, quantitative nonlinear (multiphoton) optical tissue-imaging techniques as well as harnessing the optical properties of plasmonic nanostructures for light-driven control of matter. His group has developed novel “multifunctional” nanoantennas based on 2D arrays of high aspect ratio pillar-supported plasmonic nanoantennas. His current research interests include application of nanostructured surfaces to concentrated solar power technology, and integrating polarization metrology in harmonic imaging.
