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 nanometer scale by using, for example, molecules, atomically thin materials, and tailored nanostructures. Our goal is to bridge fundamental science into nanophotonic applications in ultrasensitive biochemical sensors and energy-efficient (opto)electronic devices.
Check out some of our current and recent developments on the topics of:
- Chirality in nano-optics, including molecular circular dichroism and spin polarization.
- 2D semiconductors for nanophotonics , including valley polarization and their application as imaging sensors.
- Semiconductor and metal nanoantennas, including applications in optical metrology and biosensing.
