Prof. Zia to lead new Quantum Metaphotonics MURI

The new Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI) on Quantum Metaphotonics & Metamaterials aims to expand and redefine the range of light-matter interactions for quantum optics and photonic devices. This multi-investigator program will bring together students and faculty from 7 American universities (Brown, CalTech, MIT, Stanford, UC Berkeley, UPenn, and UT Austin), 2 international research institutes (AMOLF in the Netherlands, ICFO in Spain), and 2 industrial partners (HP Labs and Northrop Grumman). This initiative will be supported by a three-year $4.5 million grant from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) with the possibility of an additional two-year $3 million extension.
