RESEARCH INTEREST

My research interests focus on the spectroscopic and structural investigation of plasmonic hybrid nanostructures to unravel their fundamental structure/morphology related optoelectronic properties as well as hybrid interactions. I am particularly interested in the alternative near infrared plasmonic degenerately doped semiconductors and in their potential implementation for energy light harvesting, sensing, and bio-related applications.
