Quantum Dynamics of an Interacting Electron Gas in a Nanosphere

Alexandra Crai

Imperial College London

Alexandra Crai is a second year PhD student in Condensed Matter Theory in Imperial College London, working with Prof Ortwin Hess. This work is done in collaboration with Junior-Prof. Doris Reiter and Prof. Tilmann Kuhn from University of Muenster, Germany.


Plasmonic nanostructures provide a suitable environment for light-matter interaction on the nanoscale. The plasmonic excitation in the nanostructure generates hot electrons, with applications in chemistry, photovoltaics and... [ view full abstract ]
