Summary: My current research interests are in the areas of nanophotonics, plasmonics, metamaterials, nonlinear optics and spectroscopy, scanning probe microscopy, and optical properties of surfaces, thin films, semiconductors and low-dimensional structures. My group study all possible optical effects in nanostructured materials and, in particular, plasmonic nanostructures. We apply these effects to achieve novel photonic functionalities on the sub-wavelength scale. We employ these functionalities to improve photonic device performance, high-density data storage, optical data processing, bio- and chemical sensing. Nonlinear and ultrafast plasmonics, tuneable and active metamaterials as well as non-traditional applications of plasmonics in chemistry are currently our main focus.
