OSA/SPIE Seminar: Tunable and nonlinear metasurfaces: fundamentals and applications

Topic: 
Tunable and nonlinear metasurfaces: fundamentals and applications
Abstract / Description: 

Metasurfaces are artificial quasi-planar structures that can tailor light fields on demand. Their optical properties, however, are fixed upon fabrication, and a challenge is to find how to tune them externally. In the first part of the talk, I will review different approaches to tune optical properties of metasurfaces, including thermo-optic, electro-optic and all-optical ones, with applications in high-speed polarimetric devices and controllable ultrathin lens. In the second part, we will explore resonant semiconductor nanoparticles and metasurfaces as nonlinear frequency converters that have a potential to serve as ultrafast, nanoscale all-optical logic elements.

IT-Forum: Reverse hypercontractivity beats measure concentration for information theoretic converses

Topic: 
Reverse hypercontractivity beats measure concentration for information theoretic converses
Abstract / Description: 

Concentration of measure is a collection of tools and results from analysis and probability theory that have been used in many areas of pure and applied mathematics. Arguably, the first data science application of measure concentration (under the name ''blowing-up lemma'') is the proof of strong converses in multiuser information theory by Ahlswede, G\'acs and K\"orner in 1976. Since then, measure concentration has found applications in many other information theoretic problems, most notably the converse (impossibility) results in information theory. Motivated by this, information theorists (e.g. Marton) have also contributed to the mathematical foundations of measure concentration using their information-theoretic techniques.

Now, after all the past 40 years of such progress, we found that, amusingly, measure concentration is not the right hammer for many of these information theoretic applications. We introduce a new machinery based on functional inequalities and reverse hypercontractivity which yields strict improvements in terms of sharpness of the bounds, generality of the source/channel distributions, and simplicity of the proofs. Examples covered in the talk include: 1. optimal second-order converse to common randomness generation with rate-limited communication; 2. sharpening the relay channel converse bounds by and Wu and Ozgur with much simpler proofs.

The work benefited from collaborations with Thomas Courtade, Paul Cuff, Ayfer Ozgur, Ramon van Handel, and Sergio Verd\'u.

Are we seeing Hawking Points in the CMB Sky?

Topic: 
Are we seeing Hawking Points in the CMB Sky?
Abstract / Description: 

A novel analysis of the CMB data from the Planck satellite appears to reveal 20 anomalous pointlike primordial energy sources in the very early universe. Though hard to accommodate within standard inflationary cosmology, such anomalous points are a prediction of conformal cyclic cosmology (CCC), as the conformally compressed Hawking radiation, whereby supermassive black holes in an aeon prior to ours finally disgorge all their mass-energy. The basic features of the CCC model will be described in the lecture, as will a remarkable connection with the 2014 BICEP2 observations.
