His research is centred around the development of a terahertz integrated platform with high efficiency, low dispersion, and broad bandwidth. The proposed platform is envisaged to accommodate various passive and active components for a wide range of applications especially for beyond-5G communications. Based on the concept of effective medium, he has proposed a series of all-silicon self-supported substrateless terahertz integrated waveguides together with various fundamental building blocks and functional components. The proposed platform can greatly benefit terahertz integrated circuits and accelerate the practical applications of terahertz technologies, in analogy to the microstrip lines to microwave and silicon-on-insulator platform to photonic integrated circuits.
