Designer bulk plasmon polariton modes in hyperbolic metamaterials for sensing applications

Tommi Isoniemi

Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, Genova

Tommi Isoniemi worked with carbon nanotube memory elements for his MSc degree in applied physics, graduating in 2010 from the Department of Physics at the University of Jyväskylä in Finland. His PhD research focused on the use of carbon nanotube transistors in plasmonics and on the optical properties of chirality-selected carbon nanotube films. He defended his PhD thesis in December 2016 at the University of Jyväskylä. From 2017, he has worked as a postdoc at the Italian Institute of Technology in Genoa specializing in plasmonic metamaterials.


Optical metamaterials are composed of sub-wavelength structures and exhibit unusual electromagnetic properties [1]. These materials can enable applications with negative refraction, sub-wavelength imaging and nanoscale light... [ view full abstract ]
