Join us for the Optics & Photonics FREE WEBINAR offered by Rice University ECE Department.
Our next ECE Distinguished Speaker will be Prof. Renkun Chen from UCSD.
TITLE: Thermal Transport and Calorimetry at Micro- and Nano- scale: from Nanowires to Single Cells
WHEN: July 2nd, 3PM CDT.
Our work in collaboration with Proietti Zaccaria group on inducing thermal gradients in metallic nanocones has been published in Advanced Functional Materials. Congrats Joao Cunha!
This last work in collaboration with Link and Nordlander group has been just published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Congrats to Lauren McCarthy for the great work!
When: Friday June 12th, 11AM CDT

Have a look at our latest publication on the use of resonant heat recovery and dynamic control to boost the efficiency of thermal desalination!
ABSTRACT SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Aug. 19th
I am organizing a symposium during the ACS Southwest Regional and Rocky Mountain Regional Meeting. The title of the symposium is:
Light for energy: photonic and thermal nanotechnology
This symposium will focus on how light can be utilized as energy source in multiple ways thanks to nanotechnology. Topics will range from LEDs to solar cells to solar desalination and more. If you are interested, see more info here:

Look at our latest work on solar desalination! We experimentally and theoretically show how the same amount of solar power can be used more efficiently for desalination.
Solar thermal desalination as a nonlinear optical process –
Have a look to our recent paper where we show how reshaping of metallic nanoparticles happens at lower power when exciting at interband wavelengths, despite the lower absorption cross section!

On May 9th 2019 at 2PM EDT, I am going to present the modeling of Nanophotonics Enabled Solar Membrane Distillation (NESMD) during an IEEE webinar sponsored by COMSOL.
