Welcome to the Imaging at the Nanoscale: Plasmonics and Ultrafast NanoOptics group homepage. Information about the groups research activities, past and present group members, current and perspective research projects, and contacts details can be found here.

The group was formed by Dr Zerulla shortly after his arrival at UCD in October 2004. The formation this group and the Chemical Biophysics group marked the beginning of a new research direction within the UCD School of Physics - NanoBio. In the last number of years, the NanoBio division has grown to 12 staff members, including 8 active research groups. Furthermore, the development of the biophysics and nanophysics in UCD has been furthered by the inclusion of dedicated Biophysics & BioNano undergraduate and graduate courses.


Current research activities include High Resolution Electron Microscopy and Analytics, Plasmonics, Nanoscale Structures for enhanced Solar Cells, Carbon NanoTube Research, and NanoOptics. Find out more on the research page.

Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD studentship in the “Development of Plasmonically Enhanced Next Generation Dye Sensitised Solar Cells”. Prospective candidates should have an excellent track record (Minimum 2.1 Degree in Physics, Engineering, Materials Science etc...). and be enthusiastic about research. This position will be funded by an IRC / Intel Studentship.

For more info,  contact Dr Zerulla. 

There are also a number of research projects and opportunities available on the above mentioned topics.

For more info, contact Dr Zerulla.
