Plasmonics, polaritonics and their combination enable the manipulation of light at the nanoscale, at size scales much smaller than the diffraction limit. Such strong confinement is not available for photons in conventional optical systems, and thus represents a “holy grail” for applications from integrated optical technologies for high resolution imaging to chemical-selective sensing for medicine and biology.
You will be part of an international research team enabling the manipulation of light in a microchip devising novel metamaterials systems.
UTS is ranked within the top 200 university globally and is top among the Australian universities under 50 years old.
