As part of the Nanophotonics Group activities, we mainly focus on the mathematical modeling of multiphysical nano- and microscale phenomena and devices, and on development and optimization of novel algorithms to advance the field. The applications currently focus on integrated nanophotonic and micro-mechanical systems as well as functional materials.
We frequently apply, taylor and further develop the following numerical and analytical modelling methods, with applications in nanophotonics, plasmonics and MEMS.

- Corrugated thin films for energy, lighting and sensing applications
- Optical properties of a nanowire metamaterial with gain
- Plasmonic transmission gratings
- Electromagnetic coupling between organic nanoaggregates and plasmon-enabled substrates
- Device modelling of organic semiconductor devices
- Light trapping and exciton generation in organic thin films
Since the computational demand for state-of-the-art modelling algorithms is vast, high performance computing (HPC) is an integral part of our research.
