New group member Martin Caldarola

Martin Caldarola just started as a Kavli postdoctoral fellow at the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience Delft. He holds a PhD from the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina and he has been postdoctoral researcher at Leiden University at Michel Orrit’s group, where he worked on single-molecule fluorescence enhancement using individual gold nanorods. At TU Delft he will be working on a collaborative project between our group at the Quantum Nanoscience department and Prof. Marie-Eve Aubin-Tam’s group at the Bionanoscience department. The project aims combine state-of-the-art nanophotonic structures and tailored light fields to develop a new label-free single-molecule optical method. Martin is looking forward to contributing with his experience in single-molecule detection to the exciting ongoing research projects in both groups.
