Novel Plasmonic Materials and Nanodevices for Integrated Quantum Photonics
19 Jun 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Mikhail Shalaginov
This research focuses on color centers in diamond that share quantum properties with single atoms. These systems promise a path for the realization of practical quantum devices such as nanoscale sensors, single-photon sources, and quantum memories. In particular, we explored an intriguing...

Photonic Structures with Topological Robustness: from Classical to Quantum
09 Jan 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Mohammad Hafezi
In this talk, I demonstrate how similar physics can be observed for photons; specifically, how various quantum Hall Hamiltonians can be simulated in an optical platform. I report on the first observation of topological photonic edge state using silicon-on-insulator technology and our recent...
Optical Hyperspace: Light in Metamaterials with Hyperbolic Dispersion
03 Nov 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Evgenii Narimanov
The composites with opposite signs of the dielectric permittivity in two orthogonal directions, known as the hyperbolic metamaterials, represent a new "universality class" of optical media, with the light behavior which is qualitatively different from that in either metals or...
Surprising Nanophotonic Phenomena in Nature and Photonic Modeling with S4
17 Aug 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Peter Bermel
I will show how S4sim, a transfer matrix-based optical simulation tool available on nanoHUB.org can be used to precisely calculate these behaviors. A few exciting real-world applications of this work will also be briefly discussed.
Surprising Nanophotonic Phenomena in Nature
11 Jul 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Peter Bermel
A broad range of optical phenomena in nature have created long-standing mysteries. For example, what gives butterflies and birds their rich colors? And how can sightings of some unusual natural phenomena like mirages or ball lightning be explained? The process of solving these mysteries has...
Computational Nanophotonics – Designing Spaces for Light
29 Jun 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Alexander V. Kildishev
In this presentation, after a brief review of previous work based on the innovative methods of transformation optics, I present a new class of elliptic omnidirectional concentrators focusing light on a disk, a thin strip, or a rod. This study expands the theory of a circular omnidirectional...
[Illinois] Rational Design of MegaDalton-Scale DNA-Based Light Harvesting Antennas
17 Dec 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Bathe
Programmed self-assembly of DNA using scaffolded DNA origami offers the unique opportunity to engineer complex structural assemblies at the MegaDalton-scale with sub-nanometer precision. Due to their sequence specificity, these nucleic acid assemblies also serve as programmable structural...

[Illinois] Beckman Director's Seminar - Quantitative Phase Imaging
26 Nov 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Gabriel Popescu
"Ever since the invention of the microscope in the 17th century, it has been observed that live cells are transparent under visible illumination, i.e. they do not absorb (or scatter) light significantly. Thus, a magnified image of cells will generally exhibit low contrast. In order to overcome...
