A recent discovery has shown that it is possible to confine light at length scales much below the conventional diffraction limit in semiconductors. Previously, this was only considered possible in metals through the excitation of plasmons, which unfortunately are associated with large optical losses. This new discovery opens tremendous possibilities for realizing a new regime of strong light-matter interaction, with important applications in quantum technology as well as the “holy grail” of integrating photonics and electronics.
We have open PhD projects within an evolving area of nanophotonics, funded by an ERC Advanced Grant from the European Research Council. The overall goal of the project is to explore, experimentally as well as theoretically, new types of nanophotonic devices based on so-called Fano resonances. These devices have rich and interesting physics, largely unexplored, with the potential to drastically reduce the quantum noise of nanolasers and increase their speed.
