Photon transport enhanced by transverse Anderson localization in disordered superlattices


Within our Computational Nanophotonics Group, our research interests are broadly interdisciplinary, branching in a range of topics in engineering, physics and applied mathematics. During the last years we have been actively involved in research on optical properties of periodically nanostructured materials, with a particular interest in their applications to nanophotonics and optoelectronic nanodevices. Among the main research topics we mention: a) silicon (nonlinear) photonics - modelling and device applications, b) computational modelling of metal-based metamaterials with negative index of refraction; c) ab initio modelling of optical properties of nonlinear photonic crystals: d) linear and nonlinear optical properties of plasmonic nanostructures; e) formation, propagation and interaction of solitons in optical media with quadratic and cubic nonlinearities; f) soliton propagation in optical fibres, soliton-based communication systems and soliton-WDM; g) FDTD modelling of VCSELSs, photonic crystal waveguides and other active photonic devices.
