New paper with Luca Sapienza’s group published in ACS Photonics: Tom Crane, Oliver Joe Trojak, Juan Pablo Vasco, Stephen Hughes, and Luca Sapienza, Anderson Localization of Visible Light on a Nanophotonic Chip, ACS Photonics (2017). A great example of how disorder can help improve complex nanophotonics designs.
Two of our accelerated MSc students get in the top ten of the 2017 Canadian University Prize Exam! Congratulations to Chris Gustin and Gavin Crowder (and Gavin is still in 3rd year undergraduate!!). The announcement is here

Nishan’s paper published in Physical Review Letters: N Mann and S. Hughes, Soliton Pulse Propagation in the Presence of Disorder-Induced Multiple Scattering in Photonic Crystal Waveguides (e-print: arXiv:1608.08281). This paper introduces a new coupled mode theory to treat disorder and nonlinear optics on an equal footing, sucessfully connecting to a number of emerging (and past) experiments in …
