Some of the most exciting phenomena in electromagnetics occur when light interacts with matter at subwavelength scales. Our group’s main interest is to study, exploit and manipulate light-matter interactions in order to gain fundamental understanding of the physics involved in these effects and to develop next generation nanophotonic technologies.
Our group studies fundamental aspects of optical nanoantenna (the single unit within a metasurface) and metasurfaces, to allow investigations of new phenomena in nanoscale physics and engineered materials. We investigate exotic materials for manipulating optical processes at the single ‘meta-atom’ antenna level. We design and fabricate tunable nanophotonic platforms that enable the control of fundamental light properties such as emission, absorption, directional scattering, polarization, lasing etc. Utilizing these investigations we ultimately strive to make novel integrated, active nanophotonic devices.
