This is a past event.

Thursday, November 18, 2021 4 pm to 5 pm

This is a past event.

Dr. Ramy El-Ganainy, associate professor in Physics at Michigan Tech Univeristy will give a talk on "Non-Hermitian Photonics: Alice in the Wonderland of Complex Numbers " at the next Physics Colloquium.   Please join the presentation on Thursday, November 18th at 4:00pm in Fisher Hall 139. 

Non-Hermitian Photonics: Alice in the Wonderland of Complex Numbers

Abstract: The notion of non-Hermitian light-matter interactions has attracted considerable attention in the last decade. In this talk, I will quickly review our early work that opened this research area and led to these intense activities. Afterwards, I will discuss some of the relevant current research project in my group. Among others, I will outline our new work on photonic systems featuring exceptional surfaces, with their potential applications in quantum optics and sensing. Finally, I will discuss some of the open problems associated with the interplay between noise and exceptional points.

Bio: Dr. Ramy El-Ganainy received his PhD, in 2009, from the College of Optics and Photonics (CREOL), University of Central Florida.  In the period from 2009 to 2012, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the Physics Department, University of Toronto.  He was a guest scientist at the Max Planck Institute for the physics of complex systems in 2013. In 2014, he joined the department of physics in Michigan Technological University where he is currently an associate professor. In 2019, he became a senior member of the Optical Society of America, and in 2020 he was awarded the Humboldt Fellowship for Experienced Researchers.
