Tailoring the interactions between electrons, photons and quantum emitters is at the heart of various applications such as quantum information processing, optical sensing and imaging, and nanoscale optical circuits. Our goal is to integrate semiconductor nano-optoelectronic devices with plasmonic structures and novel quantum emitters (quantum dots, NV centers in diamond). These versatile systems facilitate the electrical generation and detection of single surface plasmons, and enable tunable and strong coupling with quantum emitters and spin systems. This will reveal new exciting physical phenomena such as the quantum properties of single spins, photons and plasmons. Additionally, we will investigate the plasmonic properties of graphene, a novel material with extraodinary electronic and optical properties.
