Congratulations to Bing & Peng

Bing and Peng’s work in metamaterial couplers was published in Optics Express. The paper is titled, “Integrated metamaterials for efficient and compact free-space-to-waveguide coupling” and is available via open access here. Here, we show experimentally the most efficient, compact and versatile free-space-to-waveguide couplers. These are one of the most important passive devices in integrated photonics.

Congratulations to Nabil and Peng!

Nabil’s research on solar concentrators was recently published in Optics Express. He along with Peng showed that one can use the polychromat to spectrally split and concentrate sunlight into 3 distinct bands and absorb these bands using 3 different solar cells to achieve an overall increase in efficiency of more than 35%! The paper is open access here.
