Two CUDOS FiO Postdeadline papers

Congratulations to Dragomir Neshev, Yuri Kivshar and collaborators at Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena and the Department of Electronic Materials Engineering at ANU for their paper on Quasicrystalline metamaterials, which was accepted into Postdeadline Session 1 at FIO in Rochester.

Congratulations also to Han Lin and Min Gu from CUDOS at Swinburne CMP, who's paper on Generation of split-ring-resonator micro-arrays was accepted into the same postdeadline session.

Abstract (35 Word Limit): We introduce a novel class of metamaterials with a quasicrystalline meta-atom arrangement. We study their properties in comparison to periodic and disordered metamaterials. We show that quasicrystalline metamaterials exhibit isotropic properties while preserving pronounced resonances.

TITLE: Generation of split-ring-resonator micro-arrays using a phase-modulated circularly polarised vortex beam
INSTITUTIONS (ALL): 1. Centre for Micro-Photonics and CUDOS, Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne, VIC, Australia.
Abstract (35 Word Limit): Split-ring-resonator micro-arrays are created by focusing a phase-modulated vortex beam through a high numerical aperture objective. The generated split-ring-resonator micro-array is fabricated in a polymer material by a single exposure of a femtosecond laser beam.
