This programme aims to redefine the boundaries of optical control at the nanoscale. We will manipulate the structure of light itself, actively controlling features that are far smaller than the wavelength to tune them both in space and time. Doing so will require detailed knowledge on how the light field is distributed near complex nanophotonic structures, as well as of light-matter interaction at the nanoscale. The programme will build on recent breakthroughs in the group in ultrafast light…Continue

Collaboration framework and context
Strain engineering in advanced microelectronic devices allows for a substantial increase of carrier mobility in active layers. The advances in this field, especially for ultra-scaled devices or 3D architectures such as stacked nanowires must be supported by improvements in local strain characterization techniques. Substrate engineering, in particular the growth of epitaxial silicon (Si) and germanium (Ge) layers, is actively…
