Nanoscale Light Emitters and their Dynamics


We discuss nanoscale metal-dielectric-semiconductor resonant gain geometries to create a new type of light emitters focusing on three key aspects: design and fabrication of nanoscale light emitters, second order intensity correlation characterizations, dynamics and stability of coupled nanoscale light emitters.


Yeshaiahu (Shaya) Fainman is Cymer Chair and Distinguished Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). He received his Ph. D. from Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in 1983. He is directing research of the Ultrafast and Nanoscale Optics group at UCSD and made significant contributions to near field optical phenomena, inhomogeneous and meta-materials, nanophotonics and plasmonics, and non-conventional imaging. His current research interests are in near field optical science and technology with applications targeting information technologies and biomedical sensing.  He contributed over 320 manuscripts in peer review journals and over 540 conference presentations and conference proceedings. He is a Fellow of the OSA, IEEE, SPIE, and a recipient of the Miriam and Aharon Gutvirt Prize, Lady Davis Fellowship, Brown Award, SPIE Gabor Award, OSA Emmett N. Leith Medal, OSA Joseph Fraunhofer Award/Robert M. Burley Prize and OPTICA (former OSA) Nick Holonyak Jr Award.

The Light & Matter Seminar Series is hosted by the Photonics & Nanotechnology Group @ King’s
