New Publication

Our work on the use of optical pulses to program neural networks in phase change materials is now published in nanophotonics

The work was made in collaboration with Volker Sorger from George Washington University and Robert Simposon from the Singapore University of Technology and Design. 

New group member

Daniel Perez transfers from ICFO, Spain to join us as a post doc. 

Welcome Dani!

New pre-print

We have submitted our latest work on nanoscale imaging of the ultrafast phase transition in VO2 imaged using PAL-XFEL. Here we use spectroscopically resolved coherent diffractive imaging to observe local changes in the domain structure with <50 nm spatial resolution.

New pre-print

We have submitted a new pre-print on the photoinduced phase transition in V2O3. Here we show that the dynamics are governed by disorder and overdamping, rather than coherent motion, despite an ultrafast change in the potential symmetry.
