Topological Waveguiding near an Exceptional Point: Defect-Immune, Slow-Light, and Loss-Immune Propagation
Electromagnetic waves propagating in conventional wave-guiding structures are reflected by discontinuities and decay in lossy regions. In this Letter, we drastically modify this typical guided-wave behavior by combining concepts from non-Hermitian physics and topological photonics.
Fusion Power Associates (FPA) Board of Directors has selected the recipients of its 2018 Distinguished Career and Leadership Awards.

Daniel Lee, Ph.D., Professor comes to Cornell Tech after 17 years at the University of Pennsylvania where he was the UPS Foundation Chair Professor in the School of Engineering and Applied Science. At Cornell, he will teach in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department. His research focuses on understanding computational principles in biological systems, and applying that knowledge to build autonomous robotic systems. Before UPenn, Lee was a researcher at AT&T and Lucent Bell Laboratories in the Theoretical Physics and Biological Computation departments. He was also a fellow of the...
