    Postdoc: Quantum and topological nano-optomechanics

    The Photonic Forces group seeks talented postdoctoral researchers in the field of nano-optomechanics. We study new ways to control photons and phonons at the nanoscale, by making them strongly interact with one another …

    Postdoc: Programming optical near-fields with reconfigurable metasurfaces for subwavelength imaging

    Metasurfaces are optical elements that are geometrically structured on the deep subwavelength scale in order to freely sculpt transmitted and reflected optical signals in amplitude and phase. In this project, …

    Postdoc: Nano-mechanical dynamics of single protein-chaperone complexes, studied with optical tweezers and super-resolution fluorescence

    Despite the profound importance of chaperones to all proteins, the principles of their action remain surprisingly mysterious. We know that polypeptide chains fold into complex structures, but how can another …

    Postdoc: Molecular optomechanics with high-Q hybrid photonic-plasmonic resonators

    Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) is a powerful technique that uses plasmonic resonances to enhance local electromagnetic fields, thereby giving access to single molecule  vibrational spectroscopy. Very recently,  a new viewpoint …

    Postdoc: Pump-probe cathodoluminescence spectroscopy of quantum nanomaterials

    We have constructed a unique time-resolved cathodoluminescence (CL) microscope in which picosecond electron pulses create optical excitations at 10 nm spatial resolution. The 30 keV electron source is driven by …
