Huge congratulations to FOAM member Rob Cameron who has been awarded a prestigious 5 year Royal Society University Research Fellowship to investigate molecular chirality. Welcome to 3rd year student Emmanouil Alexakis who was awarded an EPSRC Vacation Bursary to work in the FOAM group over summer.
We had a great time at
ICOAM19 presenting our invited talks on “Novel ‘standing waves’ and their applications” and “Control of Spatially Rotating Solutions in a Kerr Cavity” (see abstracts) and our poster on “ Designing fully-structured light for chiroptical interactions“. Congratulations to FOAM member Christopher Gibson who successfully defended his thesis in May with external examiner
Assoc. Prof. Fabio Biancalana and internal examiner Dr. Aidan Arnold.
Seven new papers from Rob as part of a research project grant funded by
The Leverhulme Trust:
