Our mission

The present activities of the Nanophotonics research group all take place in experimental condensed matter physics, with emphasis on nanomaterials. The central theme is the manipulation of electrons, atoms, and light in nanostructured materials.

The Section Nanophotonics is part of the Debye Institute for Nanomaterials Science. The mission of the Institute is to facilitate and promote the research of the participating groups with a special focus on the partially overlapping subfields: colloids, catalysis and nanophotonics. The Institute aims to perform research in these fundamental focus areas at the highest international level and use this knowledge in more applied projects to arrive at a sustainable society and is therefore placed in the focus area Earth and Sustainability.
