What we do

The Resonant Nanophotonics group was founded at the Center for Nanophotonics, AMOLF in February 2008. Our research focuses on:

  • Subwavelength resonators like plasmonic and metamaterial particles
  • Controlling emission, amplification  and propagation of light at nanometer length scales
  • Hybrid nanophotonics featuring plasmonic mode volumes at microcavity quality factors
  • Quantum optics with single emitters
  • Nanoscopy to quantify single nano-objects
