Expertise

Prof. Sabat is an expert in optics and photonics, as well as piezoelectric and optical materials. Specifically, he conducts research on measuring, understanding and enhancing the physical properties of a variety of solid state materials to be used in functional devices and applications. He mainly conducts research on laser-inscribed linear and nonlinear holographic nanostructures on photomechanical azobenzene materials, and the subsequent use of these nanostructures in practical applications, such as surface relief diffraction gratings, optical modulators and light waveguides. He also utilizes these nanostructures for the generation of surface plasmon resonance on dielectric/metal interfaces for incorporation in a variety of sensors and biosensors, as well as for enhancing the efficiency of organic thin film solar cells. Furthermore, Dr. Sabat is an expert on measuring and understanding the physical properties of piezoelectric and electrostrictive materials under varying operating conditions. His research will pave the way for device engineers and manufacturers to develop applications in areas such as optical communications, automotive industry, aerospace, medical, vibration, noise and shape control, non-destructive evaluation and monitoring of structures, and many more...
