SDU Nano Optics - a research centre based on the Mads Clausen Institute/the Faculty of Engineering at University of Southern Denmark
We focus on research, education, innovation, and collaboration in Nano Optics
In Nano Optics unit, our principal research topics are in the field of plasmonics, where you combine optics and electronics. Nano-optics opens exciting future perspectives and can be used in a wide range of technologies such as mobile phones, computers, channel receiving and the Internet.
Research activities of our Centre for Nano Optics comprise fundamental studies of linear and nonlinear light-matter interactions at the nanoscale, often involving surface plasmon excitations and single-photon generation, and investigations of practical applications of the latest advances in the corresponding fields that include plasmonics and quantum nanophotonics.
Our principal research topics are concerned with theoretical studies and experimental investigations of light-matter interactions at nanoscale, including strongly enhanced and extremely confined electromagnetic modes supported by plasmonic nanostructures, linear and nonlinear electromagnetic phenomena for light modulation and detection with ultracompact nanophotonic components, dynamic and multifunctional optical metasurfaces for molding radiation flow and exercising complete control over wavefronts and polarizations, efficient coupling of quantum emitters to nanostructures for enhancing and funneling spontaneous emission and to metasurfaces for molding single-photon emission.
