Today Roel successfully defended his Thesis titled Nonlinear Optomechanics In Multimode Nanoscale Resonators at the TU Eindhoven.Congratulations Dr. Brugwal!

Demonstration of quadrature nonreciprocity

In a study published in Nature Physics today, we report a phenomenon of unidirectional signal transmission that challenges conventional wisdom about nonreciprocity: Instead of relying on magnetic fields that break time-reversal symmetry, it exploits...

PhD defense Jesse Slim

Jesse defended his thesis “Orchestrating nanomechanical motion with light” today. Congratulations dr. Slim! We’re extra proud for the fact that Jesse received the special cum laude distinction, which happens only rarely at Eindhoven University...

Ewold Verhagen receives ERC Consolidator grant

I am very honored to have been awarded an ERC Consolidator grant from the European Research Council. This will allow us to explore new frontiers in optomechanics and quantum measurement. A big thank you to...

Non-Hermitian chirality in optomechanical networks

Our work on new mechanisms to control the flow of sound with light was published in Nature today. Congratulations to Javier and Jesse! By using radiation pressure control, we break time-reversal symmetry and introduce...

Molecular upconversion turns infrared into visible light

The first demonstrations of coherent conversion of mid-infrared light to visible frequencies were reported in Science. The stunning experiments performed in Christophe Galland’s lab at EPFL show the principle of molecular optomechanical upconversion beautifully....

In memoriam: Johneph Sukham 1992-2021

On July 3, our former post-doc Johneph Sukham passed away in a tragic accident. Johneph worked in our group from 2019 until last December, when he moved to the Walter Meissner Institute in Germany....

Robin Buijs defends PhD thesis

Today Robin defended his thesis ‘Nano-optical sensing and metrology through near- to far-field transduction’ successfully. Congratulations Robin! Masterfully done! We hope you enjoy your next challenges at ASML.
