Dr Andreas Boes from the RMIT University CUDOS node has been awarded the RMIT Prize for Research Excellence – HDR (Technology).

Dr Andreas Boes was a doctoral candidate with the ARC Centre of Excellence for Ultrahigh bandwidth Devices for Optical Systems (CUDOS) within the School of Engineering, RMIT University. He has pioneered an extremely novel approach for modifying lithium niobate, a material of great interest for optical and acoustic applications.

The modified structures can control and manipulate light and sound waves within microchips, enabling new devices in the thriving fields of quantum photonics and phononics, ultra-broadband communications and plasmonics.

Thesis title: Laser light induced domain engineering of lithium niobate for photonic and phononic applications
