Elbert G. van Putten

Elbert van Putten is working towards a Ph.D. in the Complex Photonics Systems group at the MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology at the University of Twente in the Netherlands. His research is focused on gaining active control over light propagation in strongly disordered materials.

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.
