Antonio De Luca is Associate Professor at University of Calabria, Italy, 

His main scientific areas now are: Organic Lasers, Lasers in confined and freely suspended structures/ Random Lasers in NLC / Loss Compensation in Metamaterials/ Plasmonic Nanostructures in presence of gain 

 

  

 

 

 

ScreeSreekanth K. V. is currently working as a Postdoctoral Scholar at the Department of Physics, Case Western Reserve University. He has received his PhD degree in Photonics from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. He then worked as a Research Fellow at the School of Physical &Mathematical Sciences, Nanyang Technological University. 

His major research interests include nanophotonics and plasmonics, optical interferometric lithography, optical metamaterials and graphene.

 

 

 

 

 

Alireza Rahimi Rashed  is postdoctoral scholar at Nanoplasm Lab. He got his M.S. at University of Tabriz, Iran in the field of electronic engineering. During his master he studied different structures of fiber bragg grating to optimize dispersion in broadband optical communication systems. The achieved background about photonics and optics, gave him the opportunity to join Strangi's group.   To pursuit this goal he studies how the presence of gain materials can improve resonant non-radiative energy transfer processes toward optical loss compensation in different nanoplasmonic systems.

 

 

 

 

 

 

melissaMelissa Infusino is currently Professor tiempo completo at USFQ Quito -Ecuador . She has received her PhD degree in Physics in 2010 at University of Calabria, working on holographic gratings in organic materials. She joined  Nanoplasm Lab  January 2013. Her principal research topic concerns loss compensation in metamaterials operating in the visible range. A specific research based on the study of the effects of gold nanoparticle dispersion in liquid crystal matrices is developed in this framework. The choice of liquid crystals like host media has a very good advantage: the long range order and their reconfigurability allows the realization of large area tunable metamaterials.

 

 

lexAlessandro Veltri  is currently Professor tiempo completo at USFQ Quito -Ecuador. He got his PhD in Physics in 2005.  His principal research interests focus on wave propagation, nonlinear optics, liquid crystals, random systems, photochemistry in composite materials, all optical materials, metamaterials and hybrid plasmonics.
He worked as a post doc researcher for the University of Calabria in Italy, the University of Bordeaux and the Centre de Researche Paul Pascal in France and spent two training periods at the Beam Engineering for Advanced Measurements Co. in Florida. He has been  Visiting Researcher in the Nanoplasm Lab.

 

rakeshRakesh Dhama   got his M. Tech. in Solid State Technology, Indian Institute of Technology Madras, Chennai India.
His PhD study mainly focuses on the study of loss compensation of metallic nanostructures and the possible ways to mitigate the absorptive losses in nanostructures by the use of gain materials. Gold core silica shell nanostructures have been designed as the building block of metamaterials in visible range, but all the efforts go in vain due to the absorptive losses in these functionalised nanostructures. The close proximity of dye molecules and nanostructures leads to non radiative energy transfer which compensates the losses. Earlier he worked on synthesisation and characterisation of pure and alkaline earth doped colossal magnetoresistance (CMR) nanomaterials and suggested that the enhancement in transition temperature of nanocrystalline samples should be attributed to the creation of random cationic vacancies irrespective of strain induced effect observed in manganite thin films.

 

 

ErmannoErmanno Miele is a bio-medical engineer with an all-around micro/nanofabrication expertise.Within Nanoplasm group he is involved as Visiting Scholar in the fabrication and optical characterization of novel out-of-plane nano-architectures and hybrid systems. 

 

His research interests are focused on plasmonic bio-sensing, functional superhydrophobic surfaces and lasing in nanopatterned systems. 

 

Out of the lab Ermanno enjoys travelling, arts and ... Science.
