For device applications, disorder and scattering have long been considered annoying and detrimental features that are best avoided or minimized.

In this talk, I will show that disorder and complexity can be harnessed for photonic applications, in particular, to provide unique functionalities of photonic devices. We incorporated disorder to a laser to reduce the spatial coherence for free-speckle full-field imaging. We also developed an on-chip random spectrometer that combines high resolution with small footprint.
