  • Research Interests

    My primary research interests concentrate on NANOPHOTONICS, FOURIER OPTICS, PHOTONIC and PLASMONIC CRYSTALS, and SUBWAVELENGTH  RESOLUTION MICROSCOPY . This includes the theoretical description and the experimental characterization of topological photonic crystals, and the development of advanced phase-recovery microscopy techniques (DUAL-SPACE MICROSCOPY). In addition, I am interested in the fundaments of Quantum Mechanics (Quantum Optics).
