Tsunami on demand in cinemas now! It sounds like an apocalyptic movie with a cruel demon controlling dreadful events. From fiction to reality, breaking news of natural phenomena have brought to successful microscale photonic experiments to offer new frontiers with technologies and materials applied to medicine, security and colour fabrication.
Uncontrollable water waves, tornados and environment disasters are stunning examples of great events generated from high volumes of energy often moving from a quite state of order to chaos. And also, multicellular organism or the 100 billion of neurons in our brain, light based processes allow cells to work perfectly together as a direct effect of evolution. Despite their diversity, heterogeneous organism all have number of interacting unites with a very complex mechanism able to work organically together.
What if it would be possible to replicate their system of broadband energy into a new generation of high performing devices? Hold on, you would not have a Do-It-Yourself perfect copy of devastating waves during your bath time, or be able to light up your room with a crafted pocket big bang. But don’t despair, science is here to help. Presenting innovative techniques employing a new type of chaotic optical resonator with a 600% broadband energy, Andrea Fratalocchi will discuss his most recent experiments demonstrating how the control of high speed light interactions can open to unprecedented sensible materials with highest standards for a wide range of applications.
Dr Andrea Fratalocchi is an associate professor in electrical engineering at KAUST. His research interests focus in the use of disorder as a building block for a new technology, which can benefit from the billenary evolution of natural systems. His vision is to grab the hidden secrets of randomness to unveil novel fundamental processes and a new class of electromagnetic materials that can be assembled on large sizes with minimal costs.
