Sara’s paper on reconfigurable, responsive, droplet-based micro-lenses is published in Nature Communications. Congratulations, Sara!
Sara and Anthony win the first and second poster prize at the Boston Photonics Centennial Conference. Congratulations, Sara and Anthony!
The Boston Photonics Centennial Conference took place at Harvard University on Saturday, Feb. 25th 2017. Sara won the first prize for her poster titled “Complex Emulsions as Reconfigurable Compound Micro-lenses”. Anthony won second prize for his poster titled “Butterfly fabrication of photonic crystals in vivo“. Congratulations!
Andreas Leber joins our lab as a visiting graduate student from the University of Erlangen. Welcome Andreas!
Andreas is going to work on a project focussed on elastomeric optical fibers.
Ben is going to work on a project situated at the interface of bioengineering, optics, and materials science.
Marie is working with Joseph on our dynamic photonic fiber systems, focusing in particular on their applications and scalable manufacture.
Meera, a high school student interested in bioengineering, joins our group for six weeks. Meera is working with Anthony, focussing on the maintenance of our butterfly culture and the modification of scale development in butterfly chrysalises.
Julia, an undergraduate student in the MIT Department of Biological Engineering, will work with Anthony McDougal on studying the development of optical structures in butterfly wing scales.
Congratulations Joseph and Sara! Well done!
The paper Multifunctionality of chiton biomineralized armor with an integrated visual system is featured on the cover of Science and in an In Depth article. Read the MIT press release here.
