Asia's Rising Scientists: Arseniy Kuznetsov
18 Dec 2020
Dr. Arseniy Kuznetsov at the optical characterization laboratory of A*STAR’s Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE).
Dr. Arseniy Kuznetsov from IMRE was featured for his work in manipulating light at the nanoscale to develop technology for high-quality holographic images. He shared his exciting research and hopes for nanophotonics in the years to come.
Holograms are created by recording light scattered by an object to reproduce a three-dimensional (3D) image. At IMRE, Dr. Kuznetsov studies how light behaves at the nanoscale - a field called nanophotonics. In 2012, his team showed that silicon nanoparticles act as miniscule antennas that can control light. Shining light on those so-called dielectric nanoantennas could then collectively supply the optical information needed to create high-resolution 3D holograms. For his pioneering work in nanophotonics, Dr. Kuznetsov was recently elected a Fellow of the Optical Society of America.
