In NanoPhotonics, new materials are constructed in which atoms are arranged in sophisticated ways on the nanometre-scale. These meta-materials often display properties that are not observed in the constituents they are made from.

The NanoPhotonics group is one of the latest groups to have been setup at the Cavendish and it is part of the EPSRC-funded UK NanoPhotonics Portfolio in Cambridge.

Research in NanoPhotonics is extremely inter-disciplinary, involving teams across a wide range of NanoScience, Chemistry, Engineering, Biology, Healthcare, Materials as well as Physics.

  • Plasmonic tunnel junctions for single-molecule redox chemistry 

    de Nijs, Bart; Benz, F; Barrow, SJ; Sigle, DO; Chikkaraddy, Rohit; Palma, A; Carnegie, Cloudy et al.
    Nanoparticles attached just above a flat metallic surface can trap optical fields in the nanoscale gap. This enables local spectroscopy of a few molecules within each coupled plasmonic hotspot, with near thousand-fold ...
  • Molecules in the mirror: how SERS backgrounds arise from the quantum method of images 

    Baumberg, Jeremy John; Barnett, Stephen; Harris, Nadine (RSC Publishing, 2014-02-20)
    The Raman coupling of light to molecular vibrations is strongly modified when they are placed near a plasmonic metal surface, with the appearance of a strong broad continuum background in addition to the normal surface-enhanced ...
