home Nano-photonics or Nano-optics is the research domain devoted to the study of electromagnetic field propagation, confinement and interaction with matter at a sub-wavelength scale. For visible light, this implies analysing optical phenomena at the nanoscale. An emerging field within Nanophotonics is Plasmonics, which takes advantage of the ability of metals to localize electromagnetic energy below the diffraction limit. Metamaterials is another related research area dedicated to produce materials with entirely novel electromagnetic phenomena not found in nature, such as negative refraction.

graphene_nanophotonics Our research focuses on the interaction of light with nanostructures that leads to exotic electromagnetic properties, which could be applied to the fields of photonics, plasmonics, metamaterials, acoustics, imaging and sensing.
