Sara Senoris Puentes has joined the group Surface Photonics to complete a PhD. Sara has obtained her bachelor degree at the University Complutense of Madrid (Spain) and her master at the University Autonoma of Madrid. We welcome Sara to the group.
Dr, Shunsuke Murai, assistant professor at Kyoto University, will join the Surface Photonics group during 2019 for a research sabbatical. Dr. Murai’s scientific interest is on the relationship between optical properties and the structure of matter at a mesoscopic scale. We welcome Shunsuke to the group.
Our proposal NanoLEDs: bringing nanophotonics into solid-state lighting, submitted together with AMOLF and Lumileds, has been granted in the High-Tech Systems and Materials call of NWO. In this project, we will quantitatively study the implementation of nanostructured surfaces designed to interact optimally with the emission of LEDs to boost blue light emission and white light…
Luka Vitomir has started his PhD in a shared project between the Dutch Institute for Atomic and Molecular Physics (DIFFER) and the Surface Photonics group. Luka’s project focuses on the experimental investigation of strong coupling between plasmonic nanostructures and molecules participating in chemical reactions.
Mohammad Ramezani, PhD student at Surface Photonics group, presented his works on Plasmon-Exciton-Polariton Lasing as an invited speaker in 9th International Conference on Spontaneous Coherence in Excitonic Systems (ICSCE9) in Montreal, Canada (July 2018). The content of his talk comprised of photoluminescence properties of Plasmon-Exciton-Polariton lasing and its ultrafast dynamics using transient absorption spectroscopy
On August 23rd we moved the optical tables from DIFFER to our new lab at the TU/e. In the coming weeks we will have the ultrafast spectroscopy and nanophotonics lab up and running.
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…
The second international workshop on Strong Coupling with Organic Molecules (SCOM 2018), hosted by the Surface Photonics group, has been carried out in Eindhoven. This workshop has attracted over 125 scientist from the whole world to discuss intensively during 3 days the latest developments on polaritonic physics. You can read more about this workshop in…
