Surface Photonics Group

We investigate light-matter interaction in a broad range of frequencies, from the visible to the THz. This interaction is enhanced by resonant structures, such as metallic nanoparticles and structured surfaces. Strong light-matter coupling leads to new fundamental phenomena that can be exploited to tailor material properties: We shape matter with light. The group is part of the capacity group "Photonics and Semiconductor Nanophysics" at the department of Applied Physics of the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e)
