Dae Yong (Joshua) Kim joined the Poulikakos Lab as an undergraduate student researcher this week. Welcome Joshua!
Congratulations to Aniket for the successful defence of his MS thesis titled “A Stokes parameter study of collagen and poly (ϵ-caprolactone) with polarized light microscopy“. Excellent work Aniket!!!
A research perspective titled “Colorimetric Metasurfaces Shed Light on Fibrous Biological Tissue” was published in the 2021 Emerging Investigators Themed Issue of the Journal of Materials Chemistry C!
This paper was authored by lab members Zaid Haddadin, Trinity Pike, Jebin J. Moses, and Professor Poulikakos.
The group celebrated Trinity’s last day in style with ice cream and bubble waffles at Boba Bar and Desserts before Trinity heads to Wisconsin to start an awesome new job as a Technical Solutions Engineer at Epic! Thanks so much for all of your amazing contributions to the group Trinity, including our research perspective paper, the optics lab, the website and much more – we will miss you!
Paula Kirya joined the Poulikakos Lab as an undergraduate student researcher today. Welcome Paula!
Prof. Poulikakos is among 20 early career scientists to win funding for research to accelerate the development of the next generation of imaging technologies as part of the inaugural year of Scialog: Advancing BioImaging, a three-year initiative supported by Research Corporation for Science Advancement, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative and the Frederick Gardner Cottrell Foundation.
The funded project, in collaboration with Douglas Shepherd at Arizona State University, studies “Wide-Field, Single-pixel Fluorescence Imaging with On-chip Nanophotonics”: https://chanzuckerberg.com/science/programs-resources/imaging/frontiers/wide-field-single-pixel-fluorescence-imaging-with-on-chip-nanophotonics/
Nanoscale Bouligand Multilayers: Giant Circular Dichroism of Helical Assemblies of Plasmonic 1D Nano-Objects, authored by Hebing Hu, Sribharani Sekar, Wenbing Wu, Yann Battie, Vincent Lemaire, Oriol Arteaga, Lisa V. Poulikakos, David J. Norris, Harald Giessen, Gero Decher, Matthias Pauly was just published in ACS Nano! https://pubs.acs.org/doi/full/10.1021/acsnano.1c04804
Today, Samantha Bordy joined the group as a PhD student in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering – welcome Sam!
Prof. Poulikakos presented an invited talk at IEEE RAPID in the session on “Active Plasmonics and Nanophotonics”. Thank you to Amit Agrawal and Palash Bharadwaj for the kind invitation!
