Our collaboration with Prof. Ayman Abouraddy’s group in CREOL resulted in an important paper that showed diffraction-free incoherent beams. This is the first demonstration of a diffraction-free beam that uses an LED as the light source and is an exquisite demonstration of space-time optics.
I will be giving an invited talk at OFC, titled “Computationally-optimized Ultra-compact nanophotonics,” on March 5. See here for details.
With an OSA Fellow Lectureship I will visit the Cochin University of Science & Technology (CUSAT) in India and give an invited talk at the National Photonics Symposium in February 2019.
Our paper on a “transparent camera” enabled by computational lensless imaging in Optics Express was among the top downloads in January 2019. Since it was published last year, it has been among the top downloaded papers each month! The paper is freely available here.
A recent paper in Nanophotonics gives a comprehensive review of nanophotonics and computational techniques, and cites our early work in digital metamaterials. It is freely available here.
A spin-off company from our lab, Oblate Optics has been selected to the semi-finals at the Photonics West Startup Challenge. Oblate will be showcasing cameras using extremely lightweight thin flat optics for visible, near-IR and thermal imaging.
