Welcome! We are a Materials Physics group. We study and explore optical, plasmonic and quantum properties of materials at the nanoscale. Currently, we are trying to understand the physics involved in the following material systems. Please refer to the "Current Research" page.  

- Strong coupling in metallic nanocavities 
- Condensation phenomena (plasmonic Bose-Einstein   
  condensates) in coupled metal nanodisc arrays
- Single photon emission from WSe2 and WS2 monolayers 
  and multilayers
- Photoluminescence and decay dynamics in solid-state 
  compounds containing rare-earth ions
- Phase transformations in carbon allotropes including
