Plasmonics & Metamaterials Group

At Plasmonics & Metamaterials Group we model, fabricate and characterize plasmonic structures and metamaterials.
These newly emerging structures have a wide range of possibilities in directing and controlling light – from simple waveguiding all the way up to rendering objects invisible.

For more information about us, see our research directions and list of members.
