My research interests include topological insulators, graphene, plasmons and Bose-Einstein-Condensates.
Surface plasmons are (bosonic) electromagnetic excitations, evanescently confined in the perpendicular direction, that propagate at the interface between two media.
A topological insulator is a material, that is an insulator in its interior, but whose surface contains conducting states.
A Bose–Einstein condensate (BEC) is a state of matter of a dilute gas of bosons cooled to temperatures very close to absolute zero (that is, very near 0 K or −273.15 °C). Under such conditions, a large fraction of bosons occupy the lowest quantum state, at which point macroscopic quantum phenomena become apparent.
