Nikos Iliopoulos joins the group as a postdoctoral researcher. In 2020 he finished his PhD at the University of Patras, where he also worked as a postdoctoral researcher for 3 years. During his studies he carried out theoretical studies about … Continue reading
Aurelian joins the group as a postdoctoral researcher. He just defended his PhD thesis at the Université Paris-Saclay in France, during which he developed new theoretical methods to model light emission by ensembles of thermalized emitters in a resonator. Welcome … Continue reading
Our group has recently published a paper on the giant optomechanical spring effect in plasmonic nano- and picocavities probed by surface-enhanced Raman scattering. The extreme confinement provided by plasmonic nano- and pico-cavities enhances the optomechanical coupling to access a very … Continue reading
