Shifting plasmonics towards the infrared: the quest for alternative materials

Eugenio Calandrini

Italian Institute of Technology

Eugenio Calandrini was born in Rome in 1989. He attended his studies in Physics at the Sapienza University of Rome. In 2014, he graduated cum laude joining the European Union’s FP-7 project "Germanium mid infrared plasmonics for sensing" (GEMINI). He is currently enrolled as PhD-fellow in the Plasmon Technologies department at the Italian Institute of Technology in Genoa. He specializes in the design, fabrication and characterization of 3D nanostructures for plasmonics.


One of the key features of plasmonics is the confinement of the optical energy into very small volumes (the so called hot-spots) that can be further engineered by means of nanoantennas. In the small modal volume of the hot... [ view full abstract ]
