Biography: Professor Gu is Distinguished Professor and Associate Deputy Vice-Chancellor at RMIT University and was a Laureate Fellow of the Australian Research Council. He is a sole author of two standard reference books and has over 450 publications in nano/biophotonics. He is an elected Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science as well as the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering. He is also an elected fellow of the AIP, the OSA, the SPIE, the InstP, and the IEEE. He was President of the International Society of Optics within Life Sciences, Vice President of the Bureau of the International Commission for Optics (ICO) (Chair of the ICO Prize Committee) and a Director of the Board of the Optical Society of America (Chair of the International Council). He was awarded the Einstein Professorship (Chinese Academy of Science, 2010), the W. H. (Beattie) Steel Medal of the Australian Optical Society (2011), the Ian Wark Medal and Lecture of the Australian Academy of Science (2014), the Boas Medal of the AIP (2015) and the Victoria Prize of the Victorian Government (2016).

Abstract: Photonics has transformed massively our everyday life and global economy for a sustainable future. Nanophotonics, which studies optical science and technology at a nanoscale, has enabled the development of nano-scale optical and photonic devices that provide a green-technology platform. Abbe’s law, originating from the diffraction nature of light, has set up a barrier for any efforts from the researchers to access extremely small regions in the nanometre scale.  In this talk, I will show that removing this barrier can provide a new horizon for the development of ultrahigh-capacity optical storage devices, nano-engineered biomimetic photonics, and wide-angle-optical display.
