Group leader: Interacting Photons

CV / Biography

Said Rahimzadeh-Kalaleh Rodriguez is the leader of the Interacting Photons group, starting in November 2017 at the Center for Nanophotonics in AMOLF. Said got his PhD (Cum Laude) at TU Eindhoven, for his research at AMOLF and Philips with Prof. J. Gomez Rivas.
Next he worked at the Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnologies (France) as a Marie-Curie fellow with Prof. J. Bloch and Dr. A. Amo. Said’s research interests include nanophotonics, nonlinear & quantum optics, and polaritons. He has worked with a wide range of hybrid light-matter systems involving organic and inorganic luminescent materials as well as metallic and dielectric optical resonators.
Currently, he is fascinated with emergent phenomena in driven-dissipative photonic systems with nonlinearity and noise.
