The main objective of our research is to understand the interaction between light and matter at the nanoscale. We are a theory-oriented research group with strong overlap with experimental groups. These are the main research lines in which we are currently working:
Parity-Time symmetric plasmonic nanostructures
Topological and quantum effects in nanophotonic systems
Vacuum and thermal effects in nanostructures
Hot electron generation for photocatalysis and solar energy applications
We employ both analytical approaches and advanced classical and quantum theoretical tools such as: Boundary Element Method (BEM), Couple Dipole Method (CDM), and Time Dependent Density Functional Theory (TDDFT), among others.
