Preparation of plasmonic HfN nanoparticle arrays for hot-electron photochemistry

Sven Askes

Center for Nanophotonics, AMOLF

Dr Sven Askes works on the subject of hot electrons in plasmonic nanoparticles as a postdoctoral researcher at AMOLF, Amsterdam, in the group of Prof. Erik Garnett. His general interests are driving chemical reactions with light in the context of biology and photocatalysis, and controlling such processes on the nanoscale.


Plasmonic nanostructures feature extraordinary absorption cross sections, highly tunable optical responses, and capability of concentrating the energy of the light in subwavelength volumes. Upon excitation of such structures,... [ view full abstract ]
