Mohamed (Saad) Abdelkhalik defends his PhD thesis “Improving optoelectronic devices performance with metasurfaces”

In close collaboration with Lumileds, Saad has worked on resonant surfaces (metasurfaces) and commercial LED architectures to directly translate the effects of resonant nanophotonics into technology improvements.  He has demonstrated that metasurfaces integrated with emitters can be a potential alternative to conventional optical elements for a new class of compact, integrated, and high-performance micro-LEDs. Congratulations,…

Room temperature condensation in a Bound State in the Continuum

We have demonstrate room temperature Bose-Einstein condensation of organic polaritons in a Bound State in the Continuum (BIC). The BIC is an optical mode with virtually no losses in an array of Si nanoparticles, which leads to a very low condensation threshold. You can read more here.
