Workshop on Correlated Disorder, Hyperuniformity and Local Self-Uniformity: From Biomimetics to Photonic Integrated Circuits

25 June 2018 - 26 June 2018


Venue: University of Surrey, UK


This unique interdisciplinary workshop will bring together researchers from diverse areas to explore the subtle interplay between composition, morphology, topology and structural uniformity present in correlated disorder structures and its direct impact on a wide range of directions from more efficient solar-cell platforms and photonic integrated circuits, to optical functionalities in avian feather barbs and butterfly wings.
