Scholarship Description: Applications are invited for a three-year PhD scholarship at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Department of Physics. The aim of our research is to explore, to develop and to apply novel optical and spectroscopic strategies to study matter at the nanoscale and at the single molecule level. We follow a methodological approach, which exploits plasmonic resonances of metal nanoparticles resulting in enhanced and highly localized optical fields. Using these near- fields allows us to push spectroscopy to new limits in sensitivity, structural selectivity and lateral confinement. The advertized PhD project will deal with comprehensive characterization and understanding of plasmonic nanostructures and their local electromagnetic fields using optical and electron microscopy approaches.
