Research Interest

Recent advances in nanotechnology allow us today to nanostructure materials and fabricate complex patterns with extreme precision. The linear and nonlinear optical properties of the nanostructured materials are drastically modified compared to their bulk counterparts. Therefore nanotechnology provides a promising means to create materials with new, outstanding and tunable optical properties.
We are working to apply advances in nanotechnology to generate novel linear and nonlinear optical materials and study the interaction of light and matter in these materials. Our goal is to unveil the basic physical mechanisms of light matter interaction at the nanoscale and to develop the next generation of optical and electro-optical devices. 
Our specific research interests include:
  • Generation and manipulation of hybrid light matter states by strong coupling of excitons and surface plasmons
  • Nonlinear plasmonics
  • Optical metamaterials
  • Lasing properties of nanostructures
  • Nanoantennas
  • Plasmonic beam shaping and control
  • Manipulation of photophysical phenomena by nano-engineering
  • Localized heat generation and measurements
