Dr Jun-Yu Ou(歐俊裕), known as Bruce Ou who leads research efforts on the topic of nano-optomechanical metamaterials, metalens and AI-enabled nano-imaging/metrology. His research has shown impacts on nanophotonics and nanomechanics as evidenced by more than 60 high-profile journal publications including first-author papers in Nature Nanotechnology, Nature Communications, Advanced Materials, an h-index of 25 and 3100+ (Google Scholar) citations, 140+ conference contributions and 3 granted patents. His work has also been internationally recognised by invited presentations at major conferences such as SPIE and CLEO. Furthermore, his success in the area of nano-optomechanical metamaterials has attracted global attention in both academic (Nature, Nature Photonics) and commercial news outlets (BBC, Financial Times) and enabled his funding record > £ 6 M as a PI or co-I. Last but not least, he had 3 years of semiconductor industry experience in SEM/FIB and electrical phase-change memory.
