I am a Rising Star Fellow at Institute for Compound Semiconductors. I have been working in the field of metamaterials, plasmonics, semiconductor lasers and topological photonics. I am interested in numerical modelling of electromagnetism and analytical description of chiral light-matter interactions. My current main research interest includes photonic topological insulator lasers using the III-V semiconductor nanowires and group theoretical approach to dielectric photonic topological insulators.

Sang Soon Oh received a PhD degree in Physics from Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) in South Korea (2007). During his PhD course, he visited University of St. Andrews in Scotland (2004-2005). After a post-doctoral fellowship at Electronics Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) in South Korea (2007-2010), he joined the Department of Physics at University of Surrey, UK as a postdoc (2010) and moved to the Condensed Matter Theory (CMTH) Group in the Department of Physics and Optical Semiconductor Device (OSD) Group in Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department at Imperial College London. In 2017, he joined the Institute for Compound Semiconductors at Cardiff University as a Rising Star Fellow.

My research background is theoretical electromangetism in composite materials such as analytical and numerical modelling of chiral metamaterials, active metamaterials and graphene metamaterials. Current interest includesl photonics topological insulators and chaotic semiconductor lasers. With the Rising Star felloswship supported by Welsh goverement, I am focusing on delveloping a photonic topological insulator laser using III-V semiconductor nanowires.  

I am interested in supervising PhD students in the area of 

  • Topological physics (photonics, plasmonics)
  • Theoretical electromagnetism (analytical and numerical modelling)
  • Nonlinear and dynamic effects in semiconductor lasers (chaos, nonuniform gain effect)
  • Modelling optical property of 2D materials
