Allard P. Mosk

Allard Mosk is an associate professor in the Complex Photonics Systems group at the MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology at the University of Twente in the Netherlands. He received his Ph.D. in 1999 from the University of Amsterdam, where he did experimental research on quantum gases. Currently he is working on methods to control both emission and propagation of light in complex nanophotonic environments. He is supported by a Vidi fellowship from the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO).

Optics

The transmission of light through a disordered medium is described in microscopic detail by a high-dimensional matrix. Researchers have now measured this transmission matrix directly, providing a new approach to control light propagation.
