Valentina Bonino, beamline scientist at the ESRF in Grenoble, visited the group to discuss collaboration on nanomaterial characterization.
The OMS group invited Professor Dragomir Neshev, director of the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Tranformative Metal-Optical Systems to gave the Photon Science Institute Seminar today. He spoke about the new institute and a specific example of non-linear optical metamaterials for night-vision.
The group welcomed Dr Antonio Hurtado of the University of Strathclyde Institute of Photonics to give a seminar at the Photon Science Institute. He spoke on Neuromorphic Photonics – the use of lasers as non-linear elements in a neuromorphic system.
