  • Active Control of Surface Plasmon Waveguides with a Phase Change Material 

    Rudé, Miquel; Simpson, Robert E.; Quidant, Romain; Pruneri, Valerio; Renger, Jan (2015-05-25)
    Article
    Open Access
    The ability to manipulate light propagation at the nanoscale is of vital importance for future integrated photonic circuits. In this work we exploit the high contrast in the optical properties of the phase change material ...
  • Nanoantenna enhanced emission of light-harvesting complex 2: the role of resonance, polarization, and radiative and non-radiative rates 

    Wientjes, Emilie; Renger, Jan; Curto, Alberto; Cogdell, Richard; Hulst, Niek F. van (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2014-10-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    Nanoantennae show potential for photosynthesis research for two reasons; first by spatially confining light for experiments which require high spatial resolution, and second by enhancing the photon emission of single ...
  • Percolating plasmonic networks for light emission control 

    Gaio, Michele; Castro-Lopez, Marta; Renger, Jan; Hulst, Niek van; Sapienza, Riccardo (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2014-10-15)
    Article
    Open Access
    Optical nanoantennas have revolutionised the way we manipulate single photons emitted by individual light sources in a nanostructured photonic environment. Complex plasmonic architectures allow for multiscale light control ...
  • Resonant plasmonic nanoparticles for multicolor second harmonic imaging 

    Accanto, Nicolò; Piatkowski, Lukasz; Hancu, Ion M.; Renger, Jan; Hulst, Niek F. van (AIP, 2016-02-26)
    Article
    Open Access
    Nanoparticles capable of efficiently generating nonlinear optical signals, like second harmonic generation, are attracting a lot of attention as potential background-free and stable nano-probes for biological imaging. ...
