The aim of the Group of Nanophotonic Devices (NANOPOD) is to use the emerging field of Nanophotonics (photonics at the nanoscale) to develop new applications, materials and devices that can address current social and technological problems in the fields of optical telecommunications, energy and biomedical applications.
The group has extensive experience in photonic crystal lasers, single photon emitters or high-speed photodetectors. It has participated in numerous national and international projects and contracts with companies. It has several patents and is supported by national and international funds.
The specific objectives of the group are:
- Design, manufacture and customization of photonic devices that make use of photonic nanostructures (such as photonic crystals) to improve their performance or to be used in new applications
