Hyperuniform disordered photonic materials are a new class of materials that harness structural disorder and control light transport, emission and absorption in unique ways, beyond the constraints imposed by conventional photonic microcircuit architectures. Hyperuniform materials are statistically isotropic and possess a constrained randomness such that density fluctuations on large scales behave more like those of ordered solids, crystals or quasicrystals, rather than those of conventional amorphous materials.
Together with Marian Florescu (Surrey University) we are studying hyperuniform disordered nanophotonic structures in which geometrical and topological correlations can enable next-generation photonic devices, including low-threshold micro-lasers and novel flexible optical micro-circuit platforms for future optical IT.
