Dr. Jun-Yu (Bruce) Ou wins QEP Doctoral Research Prize

Published: 19 May 2015

Congratulations to Dr. Jun-Yu (Bruce) Ou, winner of 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 Zepler Institute Head of Nanophotonics and Metamaterials, Prof. Nikolay Zheludev and Dr. Eric Plum at Southampton's Optoelectronics Research Centre and 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. You can find out more about this research, and see a photograph of a reconfigurable photonic metamaterial taken by Bruce, on our metamaterials case study.
