Compressed blocks of pulverized coal can be used as the basis of sunlight-powered off-grid water purification. The technology is already being progressed by commercial partners toward pilot-scale production of drinking water.
Qizhou Wang, 22, is a communication engineering graduate who will join KAUST from the University of Electronic Science and Technology, China. Wang will join KAUST in the fall of 2020 as a M.S./Ph.D. candidate in the KAUST Primalight Lab under the supervision of Professor Andrea Fratalocchi.
Chaos could help put cyberhackers out of business with a patterned silicon chip that will be uncrackable even in the future.
Andrea Fratalocchi, associate professor in the University's Computer, Electrical and Mathematical Sciences and Engineering (CEMSE) Division, was recently elected as a Fellow Member of The Optical Society of America (OSA) at the Society’s Board of Directors meeting in September.
Andrea Fratalocchi, associate professor in the University's Computer, Electrical and Mathematical Science and Engineering (CEMSE) division, was recently granted a Fellowship of the Institute of Physics (FInstP) by the Institute of Physics (IOP). Fratalocchi was awarded the IOP's highest level of membership in recognition of his outstanding accomplishments in physics.
Valerio Mazzone, a Ph.D. student in the Primalight group based in the University's Computer, Electrical and Mathematical Science and Engineering Division (CEMSE), was awarded the best paper award at the 9th International Conference on Metamaterials, Photonic Crystals and Plasmonics (META).
Integrating coherent light sources at the nanoscale with spasers is one of the most promising applications of plasmonics. In a spaser, localized plasmon polaritons (LPPs) waves occurring at the metal-dielectric interface are amplified by an active medium.
The collaboration of the teams of professors Enzo Di Fabrizio and Andrea Fratalocchi at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), in Saudi Arabia, has led to the development of a new device that enables the detection of mutations down to a single amino acid.
A new study published today on Nature Physics features a nano-optical chip that makes possible generating and controlling nanoscale rogue waves. The innovative chip was developed by an international team of physicists, led by Andrea Fratalocchi from King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), in Saudi Arabia, and is expected to have significant applications for energy research and environmental safety.
