Miguel A. Bandres is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Technion– Israel Institute of Technology and an incoming Assistant Professor at the College of Optics & Photonics (CREOL) at the University of Central Florida. He received his Ph.D. in physics from the California Institute of Technology. He is the recipient of the Marie Curie Fellowship, the SPIE John Kiel Scholarship, the SPIE Laser Technology Scholarship, and the Premio Nacional de la Juventud, which is awarded by the Mexican government to outstanding young professionals. His research focuses on finding and observing new fundamental phenomena that allow us to control light in nontrivial ways, such as photonic topological insulators, artificial gauge fields in optics, and non-Hermitian photonics.


Non-Hermitian Topological Systems

A theoretical framework tries to sort out where topological phases may arise in non-Hermitian systems—which are systems with gain and loss. Read More »
