Theoretical and Computational Nanophotonics and Plasmonics

We are a theoretical group conducting research in the exciting field of Nanophotonics and Plasmonics. Using electrodynamic calculations and a large variety of computational methods (such as FDTD, DDA, BEM, FEM, and Mie theory), we aim at investigating, designing, and understanding the optical properties of plasmonic-based, and nanophotonic systems. Our expertise goes from the modeling of electron energy-loss (EELS), cathodoluminescence (CL), optical, and surface-enhanced Raman (SERS) spectroscopies to the investigation of coupling mechanisms between elementary excitations (such as plasmon-exciton, plasmon-phonon, magneto-plasmon...) in hybrid nanostructures.


May 20 - Honor Society

Dr. Large has just been inducted into the Sigma Xi Scientific Research Honor Society. This recognizes his contribution to the research enterprise in science. Dr. Large joins a cadre of distinguished and committed researchers around the world who have united as companions in zealous research.

May 17 - Graduation

We are proud to see students from Dr. Large's group walking the stage at Commencement. Congratulations Cheyenne! 

Apr. 2 - Award

Dr. Large has just been awarded UTSA's Oustanding Graduate Mentor Award. This award honors Graduate Faculty recognized by their departments, their graduate students, and their college as excellent graduate mentors with demonstrated abilities to advise, support, sponsor and inspire graduate students in making progress toward completion of their degrees and becoming members of a larger professional community.
