Theoretical Nanophotonics & Plasmonics Group
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.



We are always looking for motivated students to join our research group. We strongly encourage students who have been admitted to UTSA to contact us quickly if they have an interest in joining our group.

Nov. 8 - DoD / ARO Grant

Oct. 26 - New Publication
A recent work on surface-enhance resonant Raman scattering of Au@MoSe2 substrates has just been published in Optics Express. This work was done in collaboration with the group of Prof. Jun Lou at Rice University and Prof. Adnen Mlayah at the University of Toulouse.

Oct. 16 - International Collaborations
Dr. Large has just traveled to Toulouse in France with an official UTSA delegation to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to frame and strengthen research collaborations and students exchanges in Materials Science between UTSA and the University Federal of Toulouse.

Aug. 21 - Conference
Dr. Large presented his work on Acousto-plasmonics at the ACS Fall National Meeting.
