Paspalakis Emmanuel

Generally, he is interested in:

quantum theory of optical and electronic properties of materials, with emphasis to photonic materials, and applications in optoelectronics and quantum computing. For more than a decade, he has worked in the coherent interaction of light with semiconductor nanostructures, with specific interest to coherent control, enhanced nonlinear optics and quantum coherence and interference effects in semiconductor quantum wells and quantum dots. More recently, he also works in the field of quantum plasmonics, i.e, the effects of surface plasmons of metallic nanosystems in atoms, molecules and semiconductor quantum dots.
