Crowdfunding for Remote Setups

During the lockdown months of March, April, and May all the labs got closed and the experimental research went into standby. All? not really. Niels van Hoof could continue his work from home with his fully remotely controlled setup. Niels is now writing the first and only scientific manuscript with experiments that were done during…

Light–Matter Coupling Strength Controlled by the Orientation of Organic Crystals in Plasmonic Cavities

In our just accepted manuscript in the Journal of Physical Chemistry C, we demonstrate the coupling of excitons in tetracene crystals to optical modes in open cavities formed by anisotropic arrays of plasmonic nanoparticles and investigate the coupling strength as a function of the alignment to the cavity field. This alignment is realized by rotating…

Diffraction enhanced transparency in a hybrid gold-graphene THz metasurface

Our manuscript Diffraction Enhanced Transparency in a Hybrid Gold-Graphene THz Metasurface published in APL Photonics. Herein, we measure the near-field in arrays of THz resonators having a transparency window. A monolayer of graphene is sufficient to suppress the transparency.

Special topic “Dielectric Nanoresonators and Metamaterials” of the Journal of Applied Physics open for submission until Dec. 31st

High-refractive-index (HRI) dielectric nanostructures, and in particular semiconductors, are attracting great attention in Optics and Photonics nowadays for their low dissipative losses, which hold promise of high-efficiency devices, and unique optical properties, exhibiting strong magnetic-like optical resonances and associated scattering directionality, which renders them as excellent nanoantennas. Thereby a wealth of new or enhanced fundamental…
