Our research in brief

Things change at the nanoscale! New phenomena arise, making nanoscale objects behave differently than macroscale objects. We focus particularly on using different types of nanostructures to control light at the nanoscale. Application areas include sensors, energy conversion, displays, radiative cooling, and much more. Some of our research projects utilize plasmonic excitations in conventional metal such as gold, while we are also interested in exploring more exotic materials for nanooptics and photonics applications, not least organic conducting polymers and forest-based materials like cellulose.
