PLASMONIC SENSORS

My experimental research focuses on plasmonic nanomaterials for Gas Sensing. In particular, I work with hybrid structures composed of semiconductor metal-oxide nanowires and metallic nanoparticles. The aim of my research is to develop a novel kind of gas sensors which exploit quantum-plasmonic effects at room temperature.

 
COMPUTATIONAL ELECTRODYNAMICS – FDTD & FEM

In parallel with my experimental research, I develop Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) numerical algorithms to investigate the plasmonic response of various geometry of interest and Finite Element Method (FEM) computation for steady-state problems.
