In the NanoOptics group we focus on the behavior of light fields at the nanoscale with the aim to mold the flow of light with nanophotonic structures. As the typical length scale of these structures is smaller than the optical wavelength, light tends to exhibit counter-intuitive behavior and we can induce phenomena that do not occur in nature: slow light, rogue waves, superchirality and control of spontaneous emission. Our group is curiosity driven but not blind for potential application, which range from a faster and more efficient internet to enhanced (bio-)sensing. Unique is our ability to visualize light flows inside nanophotonic structures in time and space.
We are located at Delft University of Technology, home to Nobel Laureates Jacobus Henricus van ‘t Hoff and Simon van der Meer, amongst many other great scientists. We are part of the Department of Quantum Nanoscience, as well as the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience.
We are looking for talented and passionate Master students and PhDs. You can find more information here! (more info)
