Research


Research covers nanophotonics and plasmonics. The objective is controlling optical phenomena at the subwavelength scale for biomedical and optoelectronic applications. Within international collaborations or by itself, Prof. A. Dereux's group achieved several world premieres:

  • Near-field optical microscopy: detection of magnetic component of optical field and optical local density of states; observation of light confinement; characterisations of optoelectronic devices.
  • Demonstration of surface plasmon waveguides: frequently cited, this result belongs to the pioneering works that triggered the strong interest for plasmonics observed worldwide for more than a decade.
  • Development of Dielectric Loaded Surface Plasmon waveguide technology reaching the first demonstration of plasmonic devices operating in true optical data traffic conditions (FP7 Platon). One patent pending.
