Enhancing, controlling and guiding light with high refractive index dielectric nanoantennas

Pablo Albella

University of Cantabria

Pablo Albella is Ramon y Cajal researcher at University of Cantabria and invited researcher of Imperial College London. His research interests and activities are mainly devoted to the fields of nanophotonics and materials science. In particular to the design, characterization, modelling and innovation of photonic structures (plasmonic and non-plasmonic) to enhance light-matter interaction along different spectral regimes (from UV to microwave passing by the IR). He aims not only to to the electromagnetic understanding and application of plasmonics, but also to open new fascinating possibilities in the field using novel nanostructures made of alternative materials.


Optical antennas can transform light from freely propagating waves into highly localized excitations that interact strongly with matter. These nanoantennas are usually made of metallic nanostructures and employed to obtain... [ view full abstract ]
