The field of plasmon-based nanophotonics deals with the many aspects of interaction of light with metallic nanostructures.
Flat optics using plasmonic metasurfaces
Based on plasmonic metasurfaces, we design and realize nanometer-thin optical components with novel functionalites.
Within the field of quantum plasmonics, we explore the interaction of quantum emitters with metallic nanostructures and waveguides.
We engineer the absorption and emission of light in metallic nanostructures for the benefit of thermophotovoltaics.
Surface-enhanced optical spectroscopies
We characterize strong local field enhancements in metal nanostructures and apply to highly sensitive spectroscopy and molecular detection.
