Welcome to my Homepage ! My name is Romain Fleury, and I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin. I am currently working in the Metamaterials and Plasmonics research laboratory lead by Professor Andrea Alù. My research focuses generally on wave physics and engineering, with an emphasis on metamaterials, i.e. artificially engineered materials and nanostructures with electromagnetic, mechanical or electronic properties unavailable in nature.
A complete list of my scientific publications can be found here.
- June 21, 2015 : I have successfully defended my Ph.D. entitled "Breaking Temporal Symmetries in Metamaterials and Metasurfaces"! Special thanks to Andrea Alù, Zheng Wang, Michael F. Becker, Michael Haberman and Mikhail Belkin for serving on my committee, and to everybody who attended.
- May 28, 2015 : The paper R. Fleury, D. L. Sounas and A. Alù, "Subwavelength ultrasonic circulator based on spatio-temporal modulation", has been published in Physical Review B (web)
- March 27, 2015 : Our patent on non-reciprocal acoustic devices has been licensed to the company Silicon Audio.
- March 15, 2015 : R. Fleury, D. Sounas and A. Alù filed a provisional US patent on "Parity-Time Symmetric Metamaterials and Metasurfaces for Broadband Invisibility Cloaks and Other Devices".
- February 20, 2015: I have given an invited seminar on Acoustic Metamaterials in the Mechanical Engineering department of the University of Texas at Austin (web).
- January 6, 2015 : The paper R. Fleury, D. L. Sounas and A. Alù, "An invisible acoustic sensor based on Parity-Time symmetry", has been published in Nature Communications (web)
- December 22, 2014 : I have received the Best Student Paper Award from the Acoustical Society of America, for my presentation in the Engineering Acoustics session at the 168th Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in Indianapolis, titled "Non-Reciprocal Acoustic Devices Based on Spatio-Temporal Angular-Momentum Modulation.”
- December 11, 2014 : I have received the Young Presenter Award from the Acoustical Society of America, for my presentation in the Physical Acoustics session on Noise Control at the 168th Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in Indianapolis, titled "Parity-Time symmetric metamaterials and metasurfaces for loss-immune and broadband acoustic wave manipulation".
