We aim to

The Resonant Nanophotonics group was founded at the Center for Nanophotonics, AMOLF in February 2008.

  • Understand scattering in subwavelength photonic structures with an internal resonance, such as plasmonic and metamaterial particles
  • Control emission, absorption and amplification of single photons by single or few quantum systems using resonant subwavelength structures
  • Develop and apply new single molecule microscopy and near field microscopy techniques that can be applied in fields ranging from near field quantum optics, via integrated optics, to biophysical microscopy.
