Mid-Infrared Second Harmonic Spectroscopy of Tunable Phonon Polaritons in Atomic Scale Heterostructures

Alexander Paarmann

Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society

Dr. Paarmann received a Masters's degree at the Technical University Berlin in 2004, working on resonant Raman scattering in semiconductor nanostructures. For his Ph.D., he moved to the University of Toronto where he studied ultrafast structural dynamics in liquids by means of multidimensional vibrational spectroscopy with Dwayne Miller. After a short post-doc at the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics in Garching, he moved to the Fritz Haber Institute in Berlin, starting his own group in 2014 in the Department of Physical Chemistry headed by Martin Wolf. He develops new experimental approaches to study phonon polaritons using infrared free-electron lasers.  

Abstract

Surface polaritons are the key building block of nanophotonics, since these excitations provide sub-diffractional light localization accompanied by significant optical field enhancements. Many previous studies have focused on... [ view full abstract ]
