Active control of transmission and helicity of nanostructured optical beams via magnetoplasmonic vortex lens

Nicolò Maccaferri

Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, Department of Nanostructures

Nicolò Maccaferri obtained the PhD in Physics from the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) in 2016, defending a Thesis entitled "Designer magneto-optics with plasmonic magnetic nanostructures", under the supervision of Prof. Paolo Vavassori. From 2012 to 2016 he was Basque Government Research Fellow at the Nanoscience Research Center CIC nanoGUNE (Spain). Currently, he is a Post-doctoral Researcher in the Plasmon Nanotechnologies Group led by Dr. Francesco De Angelis at Italian Institute of Technology (Italy). His main research interests are the fundamental and applied aspects of plasmon-based nanotechnologies, in particular plasmonic-based bio-sensing and opto-electronics, and magnetoplasmonics.


Structured optical beams have become a subject of an intense research, due to numerous potential applications in, among many others, super-resolution imaging, optical tweezing, and telecommunications. Special interest is... [ view full abstract ]
