Dr Jun-Yu Ou, known as Bruce Ou is a senior research fellow in the Optoelectronics Research Centre(ORC) and a senior researcher in the Centre for Photonic Metamaterials, where he leads research efforts on the topic of opto-nanomechanical metamaterials and nanoimaging. His research has led to impacts on the fields of nanophotonics and metamaterials as evidenced by more than 40 high-profile journal publications including first author papers in Nature Nanotechnology, Nature Communications, Advanced Materials, Nano Letters, an h-index of 20 and 2200+ (Google Scholar) citations, 100+ conference contributions and 3 patents. His work has also been internationally recognized by 28 invited presentations at major conferences such as SPIE Photonics and CLEO. Furthermore, the success in the area of nano-optomechanical metamaterials has attracted global attention in both academic (Nature, Laser Focus World) and commercial news outlets (BBC, Financial Times).

    He was instrument specialist of Electron Microscopes and Focused Ion Beam (FIB) at the FEI Company before he joined the ORC to undertake his doctoral studies at the crossroads of nanotechnology and nanophotonics in 2010. He completed his PhD on "Reconfigurable Photonic Metamaterials" and was awarded the Institute of Physics Doctoral Research Prize in 2015 and the prestigious EPSRC doctoral prize fellowship, which allowed him to undertake independent research for one year. At the end of the EPSRC doctoral prize, he was appointed a theme leader on the flagship EPSRC programme “Nanostructured Photonic Metamaterials” followed by “The Physics and Technology of Photonic Metadevices and Metasystems” at the ORC.
