Wrapping up 2022: invited talks and papers

Taking the chance to share some good news before heading for my end-of-year break. A new invited contribution was just published in the Sensors special issue  Plasmonic Optical Fiber Sensors: Technology and Applications, titled “Plasmonic Sensors beyond the Phase Matching Condition: A Simplified Approach”. Anyone working on plasmonic sensing designs in fibers and waveguides will probably find this useful, so please take a look and share it with your colleagues. We present an easy approach for device-level plasmonic sensor designs (using coupled mode theory), which only needs mode calculations (no overlap integrals!), giving meaningful information for first design steps. It also ships with code!

Thank you Alex Song, Giuseppe Della Valle and Martijn de Sterke for the collaboration!

Last week I also presented one invited and one contributed talk at the big AIP/ANZCOP/WSOF conference in Adelaide. It was great to finally be able to see my friends and colleagues face-to-face after many years. It felt like I was seeing three years of concentrated research in one week, happy to be a part of this new start. The plenaries were certainly a highlight. Photos below!
