We investigate new and improved ways of making light interact with very small matter, particularly by designing metal and semiconductor nanostructures.

We are pushing Optics to the sub-nanometer scale by using, for example, atomically thin materials, single emitters, or symmetry-breaking nanostructures.

Some of our current development are on:

2D semiconductors for nanophotonics

Chirality in nano-optics

Semiconductor and metal nanoantennas
