Electrodynamics of 2D Materials

Electrodynamics of 2D Materials Research Group

The group of Electrodynamics of 2D Materials focus his research on the optical properties of 2D materials and their electromagnetic interactions with other systems, such as non-local metals, quantum dots, magnetic systems, and insulators. The group is composed by three senior researchers, with double affiliation (University of Minho and INL) and a number of master students. The group is focused on fundamental science but welcomes interactions with more applied partners. Within the group both numerical and analytical techniques are used. These techniques are both quantum and classical. The group is quite strong in the description of polaritonics in 2D systems, such as surface-plasmon-polaritons in graphene and metals, and exciton-polaritons in hexagonal Boron Nitride (hBN) and in Transition-Metal Dichalcogenides (TMD’s). Cavity electrodynamics is also a current topic of research focused on cavities filled with TMD’s and on quantum emitters coupled to 2D materials.
