DESCRIPTION

Light matter interaction is the basis of some of the most fascinating phenomena in nature. It is also key for cutting edge technologies making photonics one of the most thriving industries worldwide.  At NAPSD we use a highly multidisciplinary approach to investigate novel strategies for the manipulation of light matter interactions based on micro and nano-structuration.

We are also passionate about biological photonic system, in particular those with implications for light harvesting in nature.  Our research is built upon a strong background in optics characterization and photonics modelling and design.
