Optical Hyperspace: Light in Metamaterials with Hyperbolic Dispersion
03 Nov 2016 | Online Presentations | 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...
Photonic Metamaterials: From Linear to Nonlinear Optics
14 Dec 2010 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Natalia Litchinitser
Metamaterials open unparalleled opportunities for "engineering" previously inaccessible values of refractive indices from positive to near-zero and even negative values, and new avenues for light...
Photonic Structures with Topological Robustness: from Classical to Quantum
09 Jan 2017 | Online Presentations | 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...

Slow and Fast Light - Penetrating the Fog
16 Dec 2010 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Jacob B. Khurgin
Performance of optical delay lines and nonlinear devices based on slow wave propagation in photonic crystal waveguides in the presence of higher order dispersion is analyzed and compared with...
Surprising Nanophotonic Phenomena in Nature
11 Jul 2016 | Online Presentations | 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...
Surprising Nanophotonic Phenomena in Nature and Photonic Modeling with S4
17 Aug 2016 | Online Presentations | 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...

Webinar: Simulating Graphene-Based Photonic and Optoelectronic Devices
[Illinois] Beckman Director's Seminar - Quantitative Phase Imaging
26 Nov 2012 | Online Presentations | 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...
