Rachael Palmer and Allison Kachel both won UROP awards for Spring 2017. They will both be continuing their research into computational imaging with lensless cameras and through scattering media. Congratulations!
Our research on broadband diffractive lenses was selected by OPN as one of the top research areas in 2016. The article is available here.
Hunter’s poster on his 3D printing project is currently on public display at the Marriott library. Congratulations!

Rajesh was recently elected fellow of the Optical Society of America “for pioneering super-resolution optical lithography and innovations in metamaterials, nanophotonics, and micro-optics, with applications in photovoltaics, computational imaging, displays, color sensors, spectroscopy and silicon photonics”. Press release from OSA is here.
Bing’s research into the application of a nanophotonic cloak was recently published in Nature Communications and is available via open access here. This work is important because it shows a practical application of electromagnetic cloaking to enable devices to be squeezed closer together, thereby increasing integration density.
