  • CREOL Faculty Research Talks: Dr. Stephen Eikenberry

    CREOL : 103

    During this series of talks, students are invited to learn more about the work done within faculty research groups. Dr. Stephen Eikenberry's Astrophotonics research effort arose from several groups of CREOL researchers and now comprises >30 scientists and research students at UCF. They bring together a broad range of expertise in photonic lanterns, fiber optic and microdevices, optical/infrared imagers and …

  • CREOL COLLOQUIUM SERIES: Dr. Siddharth Ramachandran, Boston University

    CREOL : 103 and Virtual

    Title: Long-lived Photons in Forbidden States: the influence of light’s topology on its propagation characteristics Abstract: Since the elucidation of total internal reflection by Colladon, Babinet and Tyndall over 150 years ago, bound states of light have been the primary means to transport light, whether on a chip or in optical fibers. We show that light carrying sufficiently high orbital …

  • CREOL COLLOQUIUM SERIES: Dr. Michaël Hemmer '11PhD, JILA University of Colorado Boulder

    CREOL : 103 and Virtual

    Title: Ultrafast Long Wavelength Lasers: A New Field of OpportunitiesAbstract: Up until two decades ago, laser development was mostly centered in the near-infrared spectral region. While this spectral region is well-suited for a number of applications it is sub-optimum for frequency down-conversion to the mid-IR and THz because of Manley-Rowe limitations and limited availability of suitable nonlinear crystals. Similarly, when …

  • CREOL COLLOQUIUM SERIES: Dr. Jonathan Fan, Stanford University

    CREOL : 103 and Virtual

    Title: Algorithm-driven paradigms for freeform photonic metamaterials  Abstract: In this talk, I will discuss advances in photonic engineering in which algorithmic approaches to device implementation unlock new functional capabilities. In the first part, I will discuss the utilization of freeform optimization for metamaterials in which non-local, multiple scattering dynamics enable new regimes of device efficiency and multi-functionality. These concepts are versatile and …

  • CREOL SEMINAR: Dr. Laura Kim, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA)

    CREOL : 103 and Virtual

    Title: Engineering Nanophotonic Interfaces to Control Plasmons and Spins Abstract: Light-matter interactions mediated by photonic quasiparticles play a crucial role in realizing next-generation photonic devices by unlocking phenomena that are not accessible with free-space photons and providing efficient interfaces for quantum systems. In the first part of the presentation, I will present the first experimental demonstration of a mid-infrared light-emitting mechanism originating …
