Active topological photonic insulators based on Mie-resonators

Active topological photonic insulators based on Mie-resonators

Objective

I will carry out an individual fellowship to push forward disruptive advances in enhanced light-matter interactions at the nanoscale. I will explore ways of control light-emission from quantum dots (QDs) combining them with all-dielectric 2D metamaterials that support non-trivial topological properties. The fellowship will be carried out for 2 years in the host organization, the Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC) at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York (CUNY), under the supervision of Prof. Andrea Alù. In the third year, I will return to the beneficiary organization, Martin-Luther University of Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) in Germany, and work under the supervision of Prof. Joerg Schilling. The research includes the development of theory, numerical design, sample fabrication and optical characterization. The combination of
- my present experience with active emitters incorporated with nanostructures,
- the ASRC-supervisor’s expertise in topological nanophotonics,
- ASRC’s unique fabrication and characterization facilities,
- the MLU-supervisor’s expertise in nonlinear nanophotonics
provides a unique synergy to push forward in disruptive ways the field of nanophotonics and topological optics. I will use near-infrared (NIR) QDs integrated into Silicon as the material platform of interest. The research will contribute to fundamental discoveries in the field of light-matter interactions and topological photonics, and pave the way to compact all-dielectric light-sources for data-processing and telecommunication applications.
