Work led by Tim Davis is featured as an Editor’s Pick in the latest Optics Express – link here. We show that by extracting structural information from transmission electron microscopy data, including characteristic disorder parameters, good agreement with spectral specular and non-specular reflectance measurements can be obtained.
The Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Transformative Meta-optical Systems (TMOS) is currently seeking expressions of interest from prospective PhD research higher degree and MSc coursework students. Students should send an expression of interest to Professor Ken Crozier and/or Professor Ann Roberts – a list of potential projects can be found here. Applications need […]
Members of the Melbourne node, Dr Wendy Lee, Dr Lukas Wesemann and PhD student Shaban Sulejman attended the official launch of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Transformative Meta-Optical Systems (TMOS) at ANU on the 28th September. The launch was attended by Australian Research Council Chief Executive Officer Ms Judith Zielke, ANU Vice Chancellor Prof. […]
Work led by Lukas Wesemann published in ACS Photonics reports the use of a metasurface for generating pseudo-3D images of phase objects. His subsequent article in The Conversation discusses its potential application to disease detection.
A new paper led by PhD student Niken Priscilla reveals an intriguing device which exhibits a different colour variation when observed from either side. Unlike previous research the structure involves four simple nanoscale thickness layers of silica, silver and chromium. The research has been published in Advanced Photonics Research – link here.
Faris Shahidan has led new work appearing today in Optics Express. Using nanoimprint lithography we show that it is possible to generate vivid colouration without the requirement for polarised light. Embossed polymers are coated with a variety of metals permitting an investigation of the role of the choice of metal. This work opens up the […]
The ARC Centre of Excellence for Transformative Meta-Optical Systems is now seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified candidates for MSc (coursework) and PhD positions. By harnessing the disruptive concept of meta-optics TMOS will develop the next generation of ultra-compact optical systems with fundamentally new and exciting capabilities. If you are interested in joining the […]
Lukas Wesemann, Tim Davis, Jingchao Song and Ann Roberts contributed to the new review article ‘Plasmonic Near‐Complete Optical Absorption and Its Applications’ that was recently published in Advanced Optical Materials. It reports recent progress on the development of metasurfaces and thin film structures that produce strong absorption bands in the visible and longer wavelength regions […]
