In our group we study light at the nanoscale and in complex photonic architectures.

Beside research we are engaged in teaching and outreach, and we are very interested in open science and learning by making. 

Our Research interests

Our main scientific interest is nanophotonics of complex systems. We are interested in the study of the effects of wave interference in light propagation and generation on the nanoscale and by the complexity emerging from optical fields localized at nanoscopic sources to macroscopic systems. This is the framework of our research on single emitters spectroscopy, complex nanophotonic systems and unconventional lasers. For more information visit our Research Page.
