Overview

This project will uncover new opportunities to change the colour of light on the nanoscale, taking advantage of revolutionary advances in high-precision nano-fabrication. It will bring deeper understanding of the interaction between light and matter in dielectric resonators with sizes smaller than the visible light wavelength, opening a pathway for novel telecommunication and microscopy-related technologies. The focus on transparent dielectric structures will overcome the problem of high light absorption and low heat resistance common in today’s metallic nano-photonics. Dr Alexander Solntsev is the supervisor for this project. https://www.uts.edu.au/staff/alexander.solntsev
