SDU Nano Optics

Nano Optics opens up exciting prospects for future scientific and technological developments, with potential applications ranging from information communication technologies, such as mobile phones, computers and internet, to bio-chemical and molecular sensing. At SDU Nano Optics, we conduct research primarily in the field of plasmonics, with nano-optical fields being coupled to electron oscillations in metal nanostructures, a unique feature that allows one, for example, to combine optics and electronics.

Research Projects and Cooperation

Our principal research direction is concerned with the development of plasmonic waveguides and waveguide components that would allow one to drastically scale down photonic circuitry and decrease energy consumption in active components. We participated in the first EU-funded research project ”Platon" that aimed to use plasmonics in on-chip routing applications through merging plasmonics and silicon photonics technologies for efficient and fast data transfer. Since 2012, our research has also been part of the large European IP-project "PhoxTroT" that focuses on the development of optical interconnect components with high information capacity, low energy consumption and a competitive cost. Since 2014, our main research is supported by the ERC Advance Grant "Plasmon-based functional and quantum nanophotonics (PLAQNAP)".

Within Denmark, our research in plasmonics is supported by the FTP-project "Active Nano-Plasmonics (ANAP)", which deals with ultra-compact plasmonic interconnects and sensors, the FNU project “Optical metamaterials using detuned electrical dipoles” and the FTP project “Plasmonic metal nanostructures for thermophotovoltaics (PlasTPV)”.
