OSA Optical Sensors and Sensing Congress

21 Jul 2021: Joel will be presenting his recent work on tracking single particles using random scattering at the OSA Optical Sensors and Sensing Congress tomorrow as part of the Nanophotonics and Plasmonics Biosensors III session. If you are attending then check out his talk!

Theory of multiple scattering enhanced particle sensing - paper published

19 Jul 2021: Our recent theoretical article on enhancing single particle detection using multiple scattering has just been published in ACS Photonics.

MDPI Sensors Editorial Board

11 Jun 2021: Matthew has been invited to become a Editor for the Sensing and Imaging Section of the MDPI Sensors journal.

Anomalous resonance shifts - paper published

12 May 2021: New collaborative paper has just been published in Optics Letters in which Harald Schwefel and his group from the University of Otago in New Zealand experimentally realise predictions we made of anomalous resonance shifts in optical resonators.

Two new arXiv submissions

7 May 2021: We have just submitted two new preprints to arXiv on our work on multiple scattering of surface plasmons as a means to enhance single particle detection. You can read them here and here.

Photonics seminar

2 May 2021: Joel gave a nice talk as part of the Photonics seminar series about his PhD results so far.

Royal Society URF Extension

30 Apr 2021: We have been successful in our funding application. The Royal Society has extended Matthew's University Research Fellowship for a further 3 years. The project includes study of polarization imaging through scattering media and fundamental analysis of such systems from an information theoretic perspective.

Talk accepted - OSA Sensors conference

29 Apr 2021: Joel has been accepted to give a talk at the OSA Optical Sensors and Sensing Congress. Congratulations!

Time varying media workshop

28 Apr 2021: Matthew attended the second session of the Waves in Time-Varying Media workshop. An interesting set of talks, just as with the first session on the March 31st. Thanks to the organising committee.

Vector scattering matrix symmetry constraints - paper published

10 Feb 2021: Niall's paper looking at various physical symmetry constraints imposed on vector scattering and transfer matrices has just been published in Physical Review Research.

Single pixel polarimetric imaging - paper published

9 Oct 2020: Cheryl Seow has just had her paper published in Optics Letters. She reports on her PhD work, co-supervised by Peter Török, looking at using single pixel imaging for polarimetric studies through thick strongly scattering media.

Welcome Zhonghe

5 Oct 2020: A new member has joined the group. We welcome Zhonghe Feng who also works jointly in the group of Prof. Mark Neil. As part of a Microsoft funded project, he will focus on building and modelling a system capable of measuring 3D birefringence distributions.

Congratulations Cheryl

15 Apr 2020: Despite current coronavirus restrictions Cheryl has successfully defended her PhD thesis on single pixel polarimetric imaging through scattering media. Congratulations - well deserved! Thanks also to her PhD examiners Dr. Peter Munro and Prof. Chris Dunsby.
