Professor Anatoly Zayats
King's College London
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.
