QEP Group Prize
2015 QEP Doctoral Research Prize announcement
Congratulations to Dr. Jun-Yu (Bruce) Ou, winner of the 2015 QEP Doctoral Research Prize for his work on ‘Reconfigurable Photonic Metamaterials’, under the supervision of Prof. Nikolay Zheludev and Dr. Eric Plum at the Optoelectronics Research Centre and Centre for Photonic Metamaterials, University of Southampton, UK.
He is recognized for experimental research that has established a new research direction of growing international importance. By bringing together advanced nanofabrication, nano-mechanics and photonics, Bruce has demonstrated the first practical solutions for dynamic control of metamaterial optical properties with high contrast and speed using electrical signals, thermal inputs and even light itself – a true technological breakthrough.
