Projects
Reconfigurable and Nano-opto-mechanical Metamaterials

Short CV
Dr. Jun-Yu Ou, known as Bruce Ou is currently a Senior Research Fellow in the Optoelectronic Research Centre (ORC), University of Southampton. He started his career as an instrument specialist of scanning electron microscope (SEM) and focused ion beam (FIB) at FEI Company -a world-leading manufacturer of state-of-the-art nanofabrication tools: FIBs and electron microscopes. In 2010, he joined the ORC at the University of Southampton to undertake his doctoral studies at the crossroads of photonics and nanotechnology. He completed his PhD on "Reconfigurable Photonic Metamaterials" in September 2014. For this work, he was awarded the prestigious Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) Doctoral Prize fellowship to continue his research on his own research grant for an additional year. For his PhD thesis, he was awarded the Institute of Physics (London) Doctoral Research Prize in 2015. At the end of the EPSRC fellowship, he was appointed the project leader of nano-opto-mechanical metamaterials in the flagship EPSRC programme “Nanostructured Photonic Metamaterials” and then "The Physics and Technology of Photonic Metadevices and Metasystems" at the ORC.
