Plasmonic and metamaterials have introduced tremendous research interest within last decade and have become an increasingly important field in nanophotonics. The extraordinary optical properties of plasmonic structures and metamaterials have opened up a variety of novel applications such as super-resolution imaging, deep-subwavelength waveguides, ultrasensitive sensors and etc. In this talk, I will review some of our recent work on passive and active control of light, including super-resolution microscopy, metamaterials enhanced light emission devices, quantum, and nonlinear plasmonics.
Zhaowei Liu is an Associate Professor in the ECE department at UCSD. He received his Ph.D. in MAE (MEMS/Nanotechnology) from UCLA in 2006, and was subsequently a postdoctoral researcher in NSF Nanoscale Science & Engineering Center (NSEC) and ME department at UC Berkeley. In 2008 he joined the faculty at UCSD. His previous work was selected as top 100 science stories of 2007 by Discovery Magazine, and top 10 scientific discoveries of 2008 by Time Magazine. His current research interest covers a broad spectrum of fields, including of nanophotonics, super-resolution ultrafast imaging and sensing, spectroscopy, biophotonics, metamaterials, plasmonics, energy, LEDs, and micro/nanofabrication. He is a recipient of the 2010 Society of Manufacturing Engineers
(SME) Outstanding Young Manufacturing Engineer Award, the UCSD 2010 Hellman Faculty Fellowship Award, the 2013 Office of Naval Research (ONR) Young Investigator Award, and the 2013 Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Young Faculty Award. He is also the invited participant for the Frontiers of Science 2010 by National Academy of Science and the Frontiers of Engineering 2014 by National Academy of Engineering. He was elected as OSA Fellow in 2016.
