On this page you can find an overview of the different research collaborations/projects in which I am/was involved. These projects include work with academic institutions, research centers and industry. For each of them you can find an overview of the related publications (Scientific papers / Patents).

I am always open to discuss new collaborations with potential partners that have joint research interests with those of our research group. Feel free to contact me to discuss about future joint projects.

Polarization control in magnetoplasmonic ferromagnetic nanostructures

Description In this project we investigate how purely ferromagnetic nanoparticles can be used in active and tunable magnetoplasmonic metasurfaces in order to control the polarization state of transmitted and reflected light. These novel concepts and structures pave the way for future integrated optical circuits that allow for unprecedented functionalities that are tuned by magnetic fields.

PhotoNVoltaics (PNV)

Description In this EU-funded FP7 project we investigate how micro- and nano-patterning of thin-film silicon solar cells can be utilized for highly efficient and cost-effective PV solutions. Our main contributions are in the nano-structuring of the silicon substrates by colloidal lithography using self-assembled short-range ordered patterns of Polystyrene beads.

Finished projects

Implantable SERS sensors

Description In this project we investigated plasmonic nanostructures for Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy to be used as highly sensitive implantable bio-sensors. I was involved in this project during my Ph.D. work at imec until the summer of 2012.
