I am a research assistant interested in wave physics, metamaterials and numerical methods
Hello, I'm Ben
I am a Research Assistant in Imperial College London, working in the Department of Mathematics.
My research is mainly focused on wave physics including metamaterials, Transformation Optics, homogenization techniques, resonant phenomena, light-matter interaction, scattering, diffraction, modal analysis, and topology optimization, for applications in Photonics and Mechanics.
I develop open-source numerical tools, mostly in Python, that are useful for my research.
Computational Photonics in Python with the finite element method.
Fourier Modal Method for multilayer metamaterials with automatic differentiation.
Plane wave expansion method for photonic crystals with automatic differentiation.
Python package to retrieve the refractive index of material from the refractiveindex.info database.
Permittivity extraction for multilayer stacks using an open-ended coaxial probe.
Tools for extracting material properties from coplanar waveguide measurements.
Tools for material parameters extraction from THz time domain spectroscopy measurements.
