It is really exciting to create new nanophotonic devices and to then study how they behave under extreme conditions, such as high-density optical excitation, at low temperature, and/or under high magnetic field.
Research focus: polaritonic lattices with two-dimensional materials.
In my postdoc project, I propose to use various complementary approaches to create, confine, and guide polaritons using two-dimensional (2D) transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) in open zero-dimensional (0D) and 2D microcavities for quantum photonics applications. Polaritons are susceptible to trapping by modulating either their photonic or their excitonic potential landscape. We will engineer the excitonic constituent by modifying the dielectric environment of the 2D materials. Another objective is to enhance light-matter interaction of interlayer excitons in hetero-bilayers of TMDs using plasmonic lattices.
