  • MHI Photonics Seminar - Koby Scheuer, Friday, January 27th at 3pm in EEB 248

    Fri, Jan 27, 2023 @ 03:00 PM - 04:30 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: Koby Scheuer, Tel-Aviv University

    Talk Title: White Light Cavities, Exceptional Points, and their applications

    Series: Photonics Seminar Series

    Abstract: We consider the deep relations between concepts which apparently belong to distinct fields: Exceptional points in optical PT-symmetric systems, White light cavities and superluminal group velocity. It is also shown that this relationship is a key for understanding the underlying physics of these concepts as well as for the development of many important practical applications such as flat-top filters, broad band impedance matching and perfect absorption (anti-lasing).

    Biography: Koby Scheuer received the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Technion-”Israel Institute of Technology in 2001. He was a Chief Designer with Lambda Crossing-”an optical component startup specializing in microring resonators for two years. Between 2003-2006 he was a research associate with the Department of Applied Physics at the California Institute of Technology, after which he joined the school of Electrical Engineering at Tel-Aviv University. Currently, he is a full professor with the School of Electrical Engineering at Tel-Aviv University. His research interests include nanophotonics, metasurfaces and metamaterials, slow & fast light, and optics in soluble materials.
