Congratulations to Ben Lont!

Ben Lont was a Fontys intern working on polariton lasing using plasmonic nanoantenna arrays. In his project he investigated guest-host complexes of polymers and dyes, to optimize the concentration of molecular emitters in the vicinity of plasmonic nanoparticle arrays. His thesis project “Polariton lasing using a highly doped dye-polymer complex as gain medium” was successfully defended at Fontys…
