In QMAD we are working on the design and theoretical characterization of novel metallic nanostructures, which will be part of future sensors for the detection, identification and monitoring of chemicals as well as dynamic plasmonic biosensing.
In our group we contribute to the development of such sensors elucidating new approaches and investigating new materials. In collaboration with other groups, we investigate 2D-materials for infrared sensing of gases using Van der Waals nanoresonators and we design high quality-factor resonant plasmonic structures useful for biosensing.
Also Surface-enhanced Raman Spectroscopy substrates are being designed in collaboration with members at INMA. We collaborate within QMAD developing novel superconducnting based sensors from the ultraviolet to the infrared range of interest for quantum information technologies.
