Simplarity is a young innovation consultancy, however between us we have over 50 years of business experience.

The idea of Simplarity originated in 2017 but the company was founded in the midst of the global pandemic in July 2020.

For us Simplarity is not just our company name. Simplarity is a combination of “simple” and “clarity” and it is our commitment to help our clients finding simple and uniquely tailored solutions to resolve their complex challenges in: Strategic and Technological Innovation, Innovation Management and Process Optimisation.

Simply put: we make the complex simple.

Dr. Vassili Fedotov

Dr. Vassili Fedotov 

Areas of expertise:

• Optics and electrodynamics
• Nanophotonics and plasmonics
• Novel electromagnetic materials (metamaterials)

Vassili is an internationally recognised expert in metamaterials (artificially engineered electromagnetic materials), plasmonics and nanophotonics. He pioneered the research on planar, superconducting and quantum metamaterials, optical super-resolution, and electrodynamics of toroidal and supertoroidal current and field configurations. He discovered a new mechanism of electromagnetic transparency and a new fundamental effect of asymmetric transmission. The latter work has been placed by Google Scholar among the top ten classic papers in electromagnetism.

His most recent research activity concerns the development of active and tuneable material systems for controlling light and terahertz radiation, and novel hybrid nano-electro-mechanical systems (NEMS) for smart optical materials, nanophotonic circuits, sensors and display applications.
 
Vassili holds 2 patents and has published over 80 papers in leading research journals (> 8200 citations). He is a member of the European Physical Society and EU Virtual Institute for Artificial Electromagnetic Materials and Metamaterials.
