Characterizing Nanophotonic Systems

Control of light-matter interaction at the nanoscale has applications in faster optics-electronics interconnects and miniaturized telecommunications techniques, as well as enhancing the Purcell factor and tailoring the radiation from quantum emitters. We intend to design, fabricate, and characterize high quality nanoresonators and microsystems composed of hybrid systems of metallic, dielectric, and semiconducting 2D and 3D materials. We explore the nanoexcitations in these systems for discovering novel polaritonic systems and using them for manipulating the emission from electron beams, and exploiting them for dynamical electron-optics systems.
