ORC Research Fellow wins QEP Doctoral Research Prize
Congratulations to Dr Jun-Yu (Bruce) Ou, Research Fellow at the Optoelectronics Research Centre in Southampton, on winning the 2015 Institute of Physics' Quantum Electronics and Photonics Group (QEP) Doctoral Research Prize for his work on ‘Reconfigurable Photonic Metamaterials’.
Bruce was supervised by Professor Nikolay Zheludev, Head of Nanophotonics and Metamaterials, and Dr. Eric Plum at the Centre for Photonic Metamaterials.
The award was made in recognition of his experimental work that has established a new research direction of growing international importance. By bringing together advanced nanofabrication, nano-mechanics and photonics, Bruce demonstrated the first practical solutions for dynamic control of metamaterial optical properties with high contrast and speed using electrical signals, thermal inputs and even light itself – a true technological breakthrough.
