Nanotechnology enables monitoring and controlling the flow of light at an unprecedented level. In our group, the following aspects are presently being investigated:


Research Topics

Photonic Crystals
Photonic Crystals

Photonic crystals allow for tailoring the dispersion relation of light.

Photonic Metamaterials
Photonic Metamaterials

Photonic metamaterials are man-made effective materials that form the basis for transformation optics.


Direct Laser Writing
Direct Laser Writing (DLW)

This method can be viewed as the three-dimensional analogue of two-dimensional electron-beam lithography.


Optical near-field microscopy
Optical Near-field Microscopy

A technology to catch the evanescent components of light allowing for spatial resolutions of only few tens of nanometers.
