    Giant nonlinear optical activity of achiral origin in planar metasurfaces with quadratic and cubic nonlinearities
    We show that the overwhelming contribution to this nonlinear circular dichroism (CD) is of achiral origin. Therefore, our work sheds new light on the origin of the nonlinear CD effect in achiral planar materials. Our study also opens up new routes for designing chip- type bio-sensing platforms, which may allow for highly sensitive detection of bio- and chemical molecules with weak chiroptical response.

  4. Transparent OLED
    Transparent OLED is developed in IAM of Hong Kong Baptist University. The aim is to develop a new class of transparent cathode that requires no/minimum modification to the OLED device structure. Therefore it can directly replace existing metal cathode with minimum/no change to the OLED emission characteristics. We have achieved more than 35% (45%-25%) average transmission in optical range for the cathode and used a standard OLED structure to demonstrate its performance.
