2016 ACS Photonics Young Investigator Award Lectureship Winner
Andrea Alù, The University of Texas at Austin

Professor Alù was selected in recognition of his outstanding contributions in the conception, modeling and application of metamaterials and nanostructured artificial materials to mold electromagnetic waves and light in unusual ways, going beyond the limits and challenges associated with the use of natural materials. During his recent independent research activity, he has introduced several seminal concepts in physics and engineering, with particular emphasis on photonics and nano-optics.
