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)

THz sheet conductance measured in WS2 micro-crystals

Using a unique optical pump-THz near-field microscopy, we have measured the sheet conductance in WS2 micro-crystals despite their small size compared to the wavelength of THz radiation. Read more here.
