Title: The Challenge of Weather and Climate


Abstract: I will discuss the challenge of weather and climate based on my perspective and my involvement in it, starting from mathematics degrees in the late 1960s. The study of weather and climate started to really move towards the realms of real science in the 1930s and 1940s with the ready availability of many observations away from the surface and the development of understanding using the relevant physical equations. Wave motions and instabilities were examined and theories developed. In the 1960s, data from satellite-based instruments and computers for analysis and modelling enabled a subsequent revolution in the science and in the forecasting of weather and the understanding of climate. The recent high profile of climate change and extreme weather has led to huge societal pressure for advances in the subject.

Title: Flat optics based on Metasurfaces: from new components and cameras to structured light

Αbstract: Subwavelength structured surfaces known as metasurfaces are leading to a fundamental reassessment of optical design with the emergence of optical components that circumvent the limitations of standard ones and with entirely new functionalities such as the ability to shape wavefronts in unprecedented ways by means of flat optics. I will discuss recent advances in polarization optics, that have a led to a powerful generalization of Fourier Optics and to the demonstration of a new high performance ultracompact polarization sensitive camera based on this advance; depth cameras mimicking the eyes of jumping spiders; broad band achromatic metalenses and high resolution miniature spectrometers. Finally I will present recent work on spin to total orbital angular momentum (OAM) converters including high OAM lasing; flat devices that enable light's spin and OAM to evolve, simultaneously, from one state to another along the propagation direction and polarizing elements that virtually rotate their orientation as a function of the propagation distance.
