Graphene-based random metalasers

Andrea Marini

ICFO – the Institute of Photonic Sciences

After obtaining his PhD in Photonics at the University of Bath (UK) in 2012, he carried out postdoctoral research at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light in Erlangen (DE) and since 2014 at ICFO - The Institute of Photonic Sciences in Castelldefels (ES). His research background and expertise extend over the theoretical modelling of miniaturized photonic devices, where novel physical mechanisms can be exploited to achieve active functionalities at micro- and nano-scales.


Traditional lasers are composed by three basic elements: an amplifying medium, an external pumping setup, and an optical cavity that confines and shapes the emitted light in well-determined modes and directions.However,... [ view full abstract ]
