The nanowire antenna for light: controlling the direction of light leaving a nanowire

Optoelectronic components are getting smaller and smaller. Lasers and light emitting devices (LEDs) are no exception to this shift and are getting to be at the nanometer scale. Working on this scale introduces various challenges, one of them is that the manipulation of the light emission from these devices becomes increasingly difficult. Researchers from AMOLF,…

ERC Proof of Concept grant to develop a new THz instrument

Jaime Gómez Rivas, group leader of the Surface Photonics group, has been awarded with a European Research Council (ERC) Proof of Concept grant of 150 k€ to develop a new instrument consisting of an optically pumped THz near-field microscope and a far-field spectrometer. This instrument will enable the researchers to measure the ultra-fast response of…
