Tracking femtosecond dynamics at the nanoscale

Niek van Hulst

ICFO – the Institute of Photonic Sciences, Barcelona

Following study in Astronomy and Physics, he obtained PhD (1986) in Molecular & Laser-Physics at the University of Nijmegen NL, on microwave-laser double resonance molecular-beam spectroscopy. After research in non-linear optics of organic materials, integrated optics, atomic force and near-field optical microscopy, since 1997 full Professor at MESA+ Institute NL with focus on single molecule detection and scanning probe technology. Since 2005 ICREA Professor and senior group leader at ICFO - the Institute of Photonic Sciences. He coordinates the Spanish CONSOLIDER program Recipient of 2003 Körber European Science Award, 2010 City of Barcelona Prize; ERC AdvGrants 2010 and 2015.


NanoPhotonics and NanoOptics (NANOP) addresses the interaction of light with nanostructures that are too small and complex tobe described by traditional continuum methods, and the structuring andmanipulation of optical fields... [ view full abstract ]
