Nano Photonics - Plasmon nano-optics

BSA-2-molecules-in-the-gap_157pxActivities:
The intrinsic intensity and confinement of plasmon fields at the surface of noble metal nanostructures offer a great potential for the manipulation of light at the sub-wavelength scale. Through spatial and spectral engineering of plasmon properties, we aim at extending down to the nanometer scale key concepts and functionalities required for the elaboration of future nano-optical devices. Our research relies on a permanent interaction between modelling, nanofabrication and optical characterization. Activities include light control at the nanoscale, elaboration of 2-D plasmon-based optical elements, micro and nano-optical manipulation with plasmon fields as well as the study of heat generation at the nanoscale for biomedical applications.
