Welcome to our nanophotonics group!
The past decades have seen a development in integration density of photonic circuits that outpaces Moore's law. A continued progress into the truly nanodevice realm has to rely on a combination of structural and material development. Nanophotonics are technologies where the flow of optical-frequency electromagnetic radiation is engineered in dimensions, or with function-enabling feature-sizes, smaller than the vacuum wavelength. The research on nanophotonic devices will thus be essential to achieve the high photonic integration density, as well as other applications in imaging, sensing, medicines, etc.
Our nanophotonics group is affiliated with KTH Royal Institute of Technology and is located in Kista, Sweden, with access to state of the art clean room facilities. It is part of the School of information and communication technology (ICT) and the photonics research unit (FMI) . It is also part of the ADOPT - Linné Center in Advanced Optics and Photonics. The group's research covers photonic crystals, optical metamaterials, plasmonics, silicon photonics, nanowires, etc and is very active, as demonstrated by journal publications, conference presentations and invited talks, and even involvement in commercialization of research. The group was established in 2004 and has been supported by the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research (SSF, through the Future Research Leaders program), the Swedish Research Council (VR), and many others. If you are interested in a position in our group you are always very welcome to contact our group leader to see if there is any position available.
