Zeineb Loghmari receives a Best Poster Award at ITQW 2019 (10-09-2019)

The 2019 Infrared Terahertz Quantum Workshop (ITQW) is a workshop-style conference that aims to bring together academic, government, and industry scientists in an intimate venue to encourage close interaction and collaboration.

The theme of the conference is broadly defined as the exploration of novel physical phenomena in quantum- and electromagnetically-engineered photonic materials in the infrared and terahertz frequency range and the exploitation of these phenomena to create novel optoelectronic devices and applications. The infrared and terahertz frequency range is particularly interesting for realizing practical devices based on these design principles owing to relaxed fabrication tolerances, low loss of metals, controllable plasmonic and nonlinear optical properties of semiconductors and 2D materials, and our ability to engineer intersubband transitions in semiconductor heterostructures.

During ITQW 2019 (http://www.itqw2019.com) hold in September 2019 in Ojai (CA, USA), Zeineb Loghmari, a PhD student of the group, received a Best Poster Award for her poster entitled “Dual single-frequency far infrared (17.5 and 19.5 µm) emission from InAs-based distributed feedback double metal waveguide quantum cascade laser”
