Asger Mortensen, Stephen Hughes, Nonlocal quasinormal modes for arbitrarily shaped three-dimensional plasmonic resonators (link to early viewing coming soon)
New paper with Amr Helmy’s group on the theory of hyperbolic stratified nanostructures for surface enhanced Raman scattering published in Phys Rev B: Herman M. K. Wong, Mohsen Kamandar Dezfouli, Simon Axelrod, Stephen Hughes, and Amr S. Helmy, Theory of hyperbolic stratified nanostructures for surface-enhanced Raman scattering, Phys Rev B 96, 205112 (2017)
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
