CfM Researchers to Present on Hyperbolic Metamaterials at Upcoming Optics + Photonics Conference in San Diego

CfM researcher and UNCC doctoral candidate, Mr. Hossein Alisafaee will present his group's work on Hyperbolic Metamaterials during Session 4 of the Metamaterials, Metadevices, and Metasystems Conference next month at the Optics + Photonics Conference in San Diego. 

CfM Partners with the Army Research Office

Researchers at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (UNCC) have partnered with the Army Research Office to explore how methods developed to image strongly scattering structures can be applied to improve the design of materials with custom properties.  They will be working on the project titled "Development of Inverse Scattering - Structure Synthesis Methods: subwavelength scale imaging - metamaterial design."

Vasily Astratov Develops New Approach to Achieve Optical Super-resolution

Optical super-resolution is an extremely important and popular direction of research inthe areas of materials characterization and in life sciences. The resolution of conventional microscope systems has a fundamental limitation determined by the diffraction of light, typically half the wavelength of light. Increasing the resolution beyond the diffraction limit enables imaging the nanoscale world with visible light.

Anticipating the Grand Opening of the CUNY ASRC NanoFab Facility

The Center for Metamaterials is planning a meeting with the Scientific Cleanroom Director of the new CUNY Advanced Science Research Center to discuss how the CfM can utilize the resources at this impressive new facility located just steps away from the CfM’s City College of New York site. This is a great asset for our members.
 
The Advanced Science Research Center Nanofabrication Facility is a 200,000 square foot, world-class research space open to students, faculty, government, and industrial partners.  
 

CfM Students Participate at CCNY Electrical Engineering Student Showcase

On April 25th, several CfM students presented at the CCNY Electrical Engineering Student Showcase. The showcase featured over 15 industry-relevant research and design projects by CCNY Electrical Engineering (EE) students, special talks by guest speakers from the Composite Prototyping Center (CPC) at the Long Island Forum for Technology (LIFT) and Corning, Inc., and an industry luncheon to discuss collaborative R&D opportunities available to companies at CUNY.

CfM Student Semi-finalist in SPIE Start-up Challenge

Hossein Alisafaee, an aspiring photonics entrepreneur and a CfM student working with professor Michael Fiddy at UNCC has been named a semi-finalist in the 2014 SPIE Startup Challenge. His submitted project title is “Metamaterial Dispersion Device” and the final product is expected to be a compact metamaterial dispersion compensator for use in the telecom industry.

CfM Presents at Photonics West

Simona Popescu, a CfM graduate student, will discuss the results of her work on "Active Metasurfaces" at the Photonics West Conference in February. She will present an innovative method of examining the properties of metasurfaces. A pump-probe technique is used to create a metasurface composed of conductive shapes on a silicon surface. The applications of this research are beam forming, beam steering, remote sensing, and charging.
