Theory of Nanophotonics Research groups

“Theory of Nanophotonics” group is devoted to the theoretical description of the optical properties of nanoscale structures. The understanding of these properties requires the analysis of the different time and space scales that come into play. An optimal control of the optical signal in the nanoscale is also addressed. Other phenomena that are currently under analysis include quantum plasmonics, acousto-plasmonics, metallic nanoantennas, field-enhanced spectroscopy and microscopy, as well as the theory of near-field microscopy.Research topics:
