NSF DMREF renewed!

Our NSF Designing Materials to Revolutionize and Engineer the Future (DMREF) grant was just renewed to fund another 4 years of thermal metamaterials research between the groups of David Masiello (UW), Stephan Link (Rice University), and Kallie Willets (Temple University).

Congratulations to Marc, Andrew, and Matthieu for their first paper published in the group!

Their work, published in JPCC, demonstrates a new route to beaming electromagnetic radiation via the lattice Kerker effect.

Congratulations Graduates!

Congratulations to Harrison, Kevin, and Jake for successfully defending their PhDs! Harrison is moving on to a data science position at the Institute for Disease Modeling; Kevin is beginning a post-doc with Steven Girvin at Yale / BNL; and Jake is beginning a post-doc with Johannes Feist the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.

Welcome New Students!

Warm welcome to new graduate students Matthieu Chalifour, Austin Nixon, Nicole Panec, and Andrew Rossi!

Nano Letters Cover (Again!)

Lightning has struck again. For the second time this year, we’ve made the cover of Nano Letters! This time Jake’s work on EELS-based nano-ellipsometry of individual ITO nanocrystals was selected. This work was collaborative with the Camden group at Notre Dame and Gamelin group at UW.
