James Burch and Alasdair Fikouras win Poster Competition

Congratulations to James Burch and Alasdair Fikouras for taking 1st and 2nd Place respectively in the annual PhD assessment’s poster competition! James presented work on his flexible meta surface holograms, which are topologically sensitive and…

Photonic trimming of quantum emitters via direct fabrication of metallic nanofeatures

In a paper published in APL Photonics we demonstrate the control of the emission of a GaAs quantum dot (QD) embedded in a GaAs/AlGaAs nanowire (NW) by the post-fabrication of a plasmonic grating on its surface. We…

Work on Conformable Holographic Metasurfaces makes Front Cover of ACS Photonic

“We are pleased that our work on conformable holographic metasurfaces have been featured on the cover of the special issue of ACS Photonics on photonic metasurfaces”.

Flexible Holographic Metasurface with Surface Topology Dependent Functionality

In a paper published in ACS photonics, we present a flexible holographic metasurface with surface topology dependent functionality. We demonstrate that the phase contribution of the non-flat metasurface shape determines the symmetry properties of the…

Persistence and Lifelong Fidelity of Phase Singularities in Random Waves

In this paper we show that Photonic Crystal chaotic resonators are a convenient platform to address the dynamic of optical phase singularities in random light landscapes. In particular, our collaborators at the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience…
