Mastering light at the nanoscale
The emission and absorption of light is the physical basis of lasers, LEDs, solar cells and photodetectors, which have become crucial parts of our daily life. By controlling these processes at a subwavelength scale, we can significantly improve the performance of these photonic devices and develop completely new ones. The Photonics and Semiconductor Nanophysics group investigates the physics of (nano-)photonic structures and materials in five distinct but related research lines, mostly centered around semiconductors, for applications ranging from optical communications to sensing and energy conversion.Read more
