Plasmonic crystals provide many passive and active optical functionalities, including enhanced sensing, optical nonlinearities, light extraction from LEDs and coupling to and from subwavelength waveguides. Here we study, both experimentally and numer... Read More about Shaping plasmon beams via the controlled illumination of finite-size plasmonic crystals.

Near-field hyperspectral optical imaging (2014)
Journal Article

This Minireview presents an overview of near-field hyperspectral imaging and discusses its applications. Based on a fibre-tip probe, the hyperspectral near-field optical microscope allows the simultaneous acquisition of near-field images over a broad...

The room temperature phosphine-free synthesis of near-infrared emitting HgSe quantum dots (2014)
Journal Article
Mirzai, H., Nordin, M. N., Curry, R. J., Bouillard, J., Zayats, A. V., & Green, M. (2014). The room temperature phosphine-free synthesis of near-infrared emitting HgSe quantum dots. Journal of materials chemistry. publ. by The Royal Society of Chemistry. C, Materials for optical and electronic devices /, 2(12), 2107-2111. https://doi.org/10.1039/c4tc00037d

Luminescent mercury selenide (HgSe) quantum dots have been synthesised by a phosphine-free method using oleic acid as a capping agent. The modification of experimental conditions such as temperature resulted in particles of various sizes (15–100 nm)...
