International recognition for ORC research fellow
ORC post-doctoral research fellow Limin Xiao has been recognised for his outstanding research with an international award.
Limin received the Young Scientist Award at the 3rd International Conference on Optofluidics 2013, in Hong Kong, for his invited presentation Optofluidics in Photonics Crystal Fibres. The award is sponsored by scientific publisher Springer and online scientific community Lab-on-a-Chip.
Limin’s supervisor Dr Anna Peacock said: “The simplicity and flexibility of the all-fibre microcells that Limin has developed will open up new explorations in nonlinear optofluidic interactions. I am thrilled to see his hard work being rewarded and we hope to see continued success in this emerging research area.”
Limin’s work builds on the ORC’s long successful history in fibre optics. He said: “The first successful optofluidic optical fibre experiment was carried out by ORC Director Professor Sir David Payne at Southampton in 1972. We hope our work will continue to make the ORC a pioneer in optofluidic fibre optics.”
