Non-Linear Optics and Photonics

Research is carried out in nonlinear optics (NLO), quantum NLO, plasmonics, and photonics, applied to multiscale structured matter (i.e. molecules, surfaces, biomaterials, nanomaterials, metamaterials, and crystals).

Optical responses and their coupling to vibrational and electronic excitations are predicted, from theoretical models using numerical simulations, and measured, using dedicated experimental setups, with the goal to better understand light-matter interactions in nature or in artificial systems, and to optimize their effects in view of technological applications.
