On June 28 and 29, the UTT will host nearly 70 French researchers participating in the 2021 Plenary Days of the Active Plasmonics Research Group (GDR) of the National Scientific Research Center (CNRS). The GDRs are important instruments of CNRS scientific policy. Created for a maximum period of 5 years, they have their own funding and missions.
The GDR called Active Plasmonics focuses all of its research axes on Plasmonics, a field of research that exploits the interaction between light and metallic materials (in the form of thin layers or nanostructured materials), through the excitation of so-called localized (for nanoparticle) or propagative (at the interface between a metal film and a dielectric medium) surface plasmons. This effect is associated with an oscillation of surface charges, which is accompanied by a strong enhancement of the electric field near the surface. The major objectives of this GDR are centered around the development of active plasmonic hybrid components, with an in-depth reflection on the impact in terms of applications.
The plenary days, organized this year at UTT by Anne-Laure Baudrion, assistant professor at the L2n lab, are an opportunity for researchers to present their research related to active plasmonics, by promoting a multidisciplinary approach and by widely involving doctoral students.
