Dr Mayte Gómez Castaño sucessfully defended her PhD thesis entitled Optical metamaterials: Design, up-scalable fabrication and characterization. Many congratulations photon!
Our recent work on assembled perovskite nanocrystals for amplified spontaneous emission graces the cover of Angewandte Chemie. The image illustrates the assembly process and the resulting photonic architecture after removing the patterned mold.
Our research about the High-throughput nanofabrication of metasurfaces with polarization dependent response has been published in Advanced Optical Materials. A great teamwork within the Enlightment group.
Our paper entitled Templated-assembly of CsPbBr3 perovskite nanocrystals into 2D photonic supercrystals with amplified spontaneous emission, co-authored by D. Vila-Liarte, J. L. Garcia-Pomar and A. Mihi, has been published in Angewandte Chemie Interntional Edition. A great collaboration with the University of Munchen and CIC biomaGune.
Our paper Near infrared organic photodetectors based on enhanced charge transfer state absorption by photonic architectures, co-authored by P.Molet and A. Mihi, has been published in Journal of Materials Chemistry C.
Dr. Leonardo Scarabelli has been awarded with one of the 30 Postdoctorate Junior Leader fellowships from La Caixa Foundation, within the Marie Curie Actions Horizon 2020. Exciting years are coming!
Our paper about Large area metasurfaces made with spherical silicon resonators has been published in Nanophotonics. Co-authored by P. Molet, J. L. Garcia-Pomar and A. Mihi after an enriching collaboration with researchers from the Institute of Materials Science of Madrid.
Congratulations to Dr. Cristiano Matricardi for his thesis on Hybrid plasmonic-photonic nanostructures for enhanced spectroscopies. Well done photon!
Camilla Dore won the first prize of the Generació d'Idees contest 2019, from Parc de Recerca of the UAB. Her team proposed a biodegradable cellulose-based packaging: Cellupack!
Congratulations to David Vila for his excellent mark in his masters thesis defense!
Our paper Energy Transfer and Interference by Collective Electromagnetic Coupling has been published in Nano Letters. Co-authored by M. Gómez-Castaño, within a collaboration with the Arizona State University, University of Bordeaux and Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.
Happy Enlightment members at the META 2019 conference held in Lisbon.
Juan Luis García Pomar co-author of the just published science outreach book Descubriendo la luz: experimentos divertidos de óptica. Enjoy it!
