IEEE BRAC University Student Branch organized Talk on Bio Inspired Nano Photonics on the 22nd of January 2017, Sunday. The event took place at the GDLN Centre at BRAC University from 3 30 pm till 5 00 pm. The speaker, Dr. Siddique is working as a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Medical Engineering at California Institute of Technology (Caltech),USA since April 2016. He received his PhD (summa cum laude) in 2016 from Helmholtz Institute of Microstructure Technology at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany in the field of bio inspired nanophotonics. in France. In 2009, he graduated from the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) with a B.Sc. in EEE and served as a lecturer in the department of EEE in BRAC University for a year till 2010. His field of research interest concentrates on understanding the underlying physics at nanoscale of fascinating biologically evolved optical structures, developing affordable nanofabrication techniques to implement them, and incorporating the discoveries into device-level biomimetic engineering solutions for opto electronics and medical applications. The event was inaugurated by Dr. Mosaddeq, Professor of the Department of EEE, BRAC University and faculty members of the department joined the session with enthusiasm. An overwhelming response was received by the students and a turnout of 70 was witnessed. Dr. Radwanul Siddiqui made acute interpretations of biological nanophotonic surfaces from an engineer’s perspective that lead to the derivation of new bio-inspired construction principles. Taking butterflies as ’blueprints’, this talk covered few examples of novel physical principles underlying the structural coloration, and further discussion regarding possible fabrication solutions for diverse optical applications also took place. The attendees thoroughly enjoyed his lecture and were extremely inspired with working in this field. The Question and Answer session had a warm welcome from everyone, especially the faculties who saw a lot of potential to invest their potential and time under this research field. Towards the end, Dr. Siddiqui was presented with a crest for sharing his expertise with the university and its members, which was followed by a session of photography and distribution of refreshments to all. Overall, the event was a great success!
