Congratulations to Amihai, Jason & Carl for new paper!

Amihai, Jason and Carl’s research into a version of interferometric localization microscopy was recently published in Nanoscale here. By utilizing the phase information of scattered light, we were able to localize a nanoparticle to a precision of less than 3nm! This is an important achievement towards drastically increasing the resolution of super-resolution microscopy and optical tracking.

Congratulations to Bing & Peng for new paper!

Bing and Peng’s research into integrated “digital” metamaterials was recently published in Nature Photonics. They designed, fabricated and characterized the smallest integrated polarization-beam-splitter. This was achieved via a judicious combination of numerical computation, insights into nanophotonics and a keen understanding of fabrication constraints.
