Congratulations to Bing for new paper!

Bing’s work into free-space optical diodes using metasurfaces was recently published in Optics Express and available freely here. This is the first demonstration of polarization-independent optical-diode behavior and could have important implications in designing laser cavities, one-way mirrors, etc. Congratulations!

Congratulations to Ganghun for new paper!

Ganghun’s work was recently published in Applied Physics Letters. This is the first demonstration of widefield fluorescence microscopy of biological samples (mouse-brain slices) using computational-cannula microscopy. This is the first step in enabling one to elegantly image deep inside the brain with high resolution. The paper is available via open access here.
