The Photonic Materials group focuses on three main research themes:

  • Light management in new photovoltaic materials: towards ultra-high efficiency solar cells
  • Optical metamaterials: steering light in unusual ways
  • Angle-resolved cathodoluminescence imaging spectroscopy: optical microscopy at 30 nm resolution
