Plasmonics and Quantum Nanophotonics

Welcome !

We are the Plasmonics and Quantum Nanophotonics team !

The activities of the team are under the supervision of Pr. Jean-Jacques GREFFET, Full Professor, and Dr. Benjamin VEST, Associate Professor of Optics and Photonics at Institut d'Optique Graduate School.

We are always interested by outstanding, highly-motivated candidates, driven by the passion for light sciences and willing to join a young and dynamic research team !

If you want to apply for a PhD program or a postdoc position, you are encouraged to look at the "Prospective Group Members" page and to contact us.

Conférence NFO à Victoria, Canada , 31 août 2022: Anne NGuyen (PhD 2022), Aurelian Loirette--Pelous (PhD 2023), Pr. Jean-Jacques Greffet, Elise Bailly (PhD 2023), Dr. Benjamin Vest.

The Quantum Plasmonics and Nanophotonics team is engaged in research focused on the understanding and the control of spontaneous emission of light by a range of objects, from assemblies of emitters to single quantum emitters. We consider spontaneous emission as a general process that can take a number of forms, such as photoluminescence, thermal emission or electroluminescence, that all represent different research topics of our group. We work both on theory and on experimental aspects.

About our team...
