  • Observation of hybrid Tamm-plasmon exciton-polaritons with GaAs quantum wells and a MoSe2 monolayer 

    Wurdack, Matthias; Lundt, Nils; Klaas, Martin; Baumann, Vasilij; Kavokin, Alexey; Höfling, Sven; Schneider, Christian (2017-08-15) - Journal article
    Strong light matter coupling between excitons and microcavity photons, as described in the framework of cavity quantum electrodynamics, leads to the hybridization of light and matter excitations. The regime of collective ...
  • ForceEigenModes matlab code 

    Mazilu, Michael (University of St Andrews, 2017) - Software
    Scripts that use the MieForce code to calculate the momentum (force) eigenmodes of a Mie particle.
  • Raman imaging through a single multimode fibre 

    Gusachenko, Ivan; Chen, Mingzhou; Dholakia, Kishan (2017-06-12) - Journal article
    Vibrational spectroscopy is a widespread, powerful method of recording the spectra of constituent molecules within a sample in a label-free manner. As an example, Raman spectroscopy has major applications in materials ...
  • Conformable holographic metasurfaces 

    Burch, James; Wen, Dandan; Chen, Xianzhong; Di Falco, Andrea (2017-07-03) - Journal article
    Metasurface holograms are typically fabricated on rigid substrates. Here we experimentally demonstrate broadband, flexible, conformable, helicity multiplexed metasurface holograms operating in the visible range, offering ...
  • Harnessing speckle for a sub-femtometre resolved broadband wavemeter and laser stabilization 

    Metzger, Nikolaus Klaus; Spesyvtsev, Roman; Bruce, Graham D.; Miller, Bill; Maker, Gareth T.; Malcolm, Graeme; Mazilu, Michael; Dholakia, Kishan (2017-06-05) - Journal article
    The accurate determination and control of the wavelength of light is fundamental to many fields of science. Speckle patterns resulting from the interference of multiple reflections in disordered media are well-known to ...
