Dr. Alexander Argyros
Dr. Alexander Argyros received his PhD degree from the University of Sydney in 2006, at which time he was appointed a Research Fellow at the Optical Fibre Technology Centre (OFTC) working on microstructured polymer optical fibres and hollow-core and photonic bandgap fibres. In 2009 he joined the School of Physics, University of Sydney, as a Senior Research Fellow. His research has continued to involve microstructured polymer fibres, considering their applications in sensing, data transmission and THz waveguiding, as well as using the technology as a platform for the fabrication of metamaterials. Dr. Argyros became Deputy Director of IPOS in 2011.
