1) Semiconductor laser processing: In this line of research we pursue 
fabrication of functional photonic structures on and under the surface 
of semiconductor materials such as silicon. The research involves use of 
ultrashort infrared laser pulses, optical instrumentation, optical 
characterization. The researchers are expected to have background in 
lasers and light-matter interaction.

2) Multilayer plasmonics: Thin film coating techniques such as atomic 
layer deposition, thermal evaporation and sputtering will be employed to 
fabricate 2D, 1D and 0D metal-insulator-metal nanostructures. 1D and 0D 
structures will be chemically synthesized. 2D structures will be 
constructed by deposition techniques. Optical or laser interference 
lithography techniques will be employed. Experience in any related 
technique is a plus.

3) Optical nanoantennae: Nanoantennae with various geometry and sizes 
will be fabricated by e-beam lithography and focused ion beam milling. 
Numerical simulations will be run and compared to experimentally 
determined properties. Optical characterization will be performed by 
dark and bright field spectroscopic techniques. Experience in 
microfabrication, microscope and spectrometer operation is a big plus.
