Brief Bio
Pablo Albella holds a prestigious researcher position (RyC), at the University of Cantabria and is invited researcher at Imperial College London. He holds a PhD in Physics since 2009 awarded with the prize of best thesis in physics that year. He was postdoctoral researcher from 2010 to 2013 at the Material Physics Center (UPV/CSIC) in San Sebastian and from 2013 to 2017 senior research associate at Imperial College London, UK. His research interests and activities are mainly devoted to the fields of nanophotonics and materials science. In particular, to the optical modelling and innovation of photonic structures able to enhance the performance of the actual nanodevices that rely on light-matter interaction to boost applications like sensing, spectroscopy, optical nanocircuits, customized metamaterials or energy storage. He aims to, not only the electromagnetic understanding and application of plasmonics, but also to open new fascinating possibilities in the field using novel nanostructures made of alternative materials.

SCOPE

The interaction between light and small clusters of nanoscale metallic and/or dielectric components has been a recent subject of extensive experimental and theoretical research. Knowledge and understanding of the near- and far-field optical responses from individual and coupled nanoparticles have led to an unprecedented development in the fields of molecular optics, optical antenna design, surface enhanced spectroscopies, bio/chemical sensing, light guiding, solar cell system, information storage and other. Research of light-matter interaction at the nanoscale now presents an opportunity to build on the existing work or/and establish novel directions for this area of research.

We invite researchers to contribute with original research ideas that will stimulate the continuing reports to exploit the great potential that light-matter interaction have for real life applications but also to develop this field for future nanophotonic devices.
