Our recent paper on the use of cloaking to increase photonic density was covered by the media here:
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.
Rajesh’s recent plenary talk at Microphotonics Berlin was recently featured in a LaserFocusWorld article here.
Rajesh gave a plenary lecture titled, “Digital metamaterials and micro-optics for photonics & imaging” at the Microphotonics International Congress Expo on Oct. 11 in Berlin, Germany. It was a wonderful mix of scientists and engineers from academia and industry.
Sama Alkilani and Ganghun Kim presented their research at the USTAR Confluence on campus.
Peng, our recent PhD graduate was selected as the winner of the University-level Innovation in Technology competition. As a winner of this competition, he will represent the University of Utah in the national competition sponsored by the Western Alliance of Graduate Schools (WAGS).
