Alvaro Nodar, a new PhD student, joins our group! Alvaro has obtained his master’s degree at the University of Santiago de Compostela, where he worked in the field of quantum optics, and where he has developed a lithography system for … Continue reading
Work of our group about electron energy loss spectroscopy published in Nature Communications! We performed one of the first electron energy loss studies in the infrared spectral range merging experiment and theory and thus bringing important insights in physics of … Continue reading
Exquisite control of the coherent interaction between a plasmonic mode and a single molecule with sub-nanometer spatial resolution has been demonstrated in the field of nanophotonics. The result has been published in Nature Communications. Researchers from the Theory of Nanophotonics group … Continue reading
When Optics goes Atomic The smallest lens in the world, capable to concentrate light down to dimensions of an atom, has been created. We have used gold nanoparticles as focusing lenses that allow to flex individual chemical bonds in molecules. … Continue reading
Mario Zapata Herrera, who just defended his thesis at Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia, and Gabriela Olivíková, a master student from Brno University of Technology, join our group. Mario will continue his work on quantum-mechanical description of very … Continue reading
Mikolaj Schmidt successfully defended his doctoral thesis: Classical and quantum approaches to the interaction of light and matter at the nanoscale Lately Mikolaj has been working in the field of quantum plasmonics, but his work covers also theory of classical … Continue reading
Phtons and electrons talk to each other at the nanoscale A technological solution to control the transmission of information between electrons and photons at the nanoscale by means of electrical currents is proposed in the framework of an international collaboration … Continue reading
This is continuation of the conversation that Igor Campillo and Javier Aizpurua had for “Desayuno con fotones”, “Breakfast with photons” (In Spanish).
Angela Dematriadou “was recognised as being an extremely talented and enthusiastic young researcher” and was awarded the Early Career Award.
This is the first part of a conversation that Igor Campillo and Javier Aizpurua had for “Desayuno con fotones”, “Breakfast with photons” (In Spanish).
