Jerome will attend SPIE Photonics Europe 2014 conference in Brussels on April 14-17. He will present four contributions from the group:
- Paper 9126-57 Plasmonic nanoantennas for enhanced single molecule analysis at high concentrations (invited paper)
- Paper 9126-62 Enhanced fluorescence emission from resonant DNA assembled plasmonic nanoantennas loaded with single dye molecules
- Paper 9129-91 Hollow core photonic crystal fiber probes for Raman and fluorescence spectroscopy with photonic nanojet focusing
- Paper 9125-62 Homogenization of metamaterials through the singular analysis of scattering spectra
We have recently published a review paper about plasmonic antennas and zero mode waveguides (nanoapertures) to enhance the detection and analysis of fluorescent molecules. Single molecule spectroscopy techniques, FRET and FCS can greatly benefit from zero mode waveguides and plasmonic antennas to enter a new dimension of molecular concentration reaching physiological conditions. You can find the review on WIREs Nanomedicine and Nanobiotechnology, or alternatively, we posted an unedited version on arXiv.
Petru, Juan and Jerome will attend the NanoLight 2014 conference in Benasque during the first week of March. They will give one talk and three poster contributions:
- Plasmonic enhanced fluorescence energy transfer
- Enhanced fluorescence emission from resonant DNA assembled plasmonic nanoantennas loaded with single dye molecules
- Homogenization of metamaterials through the singular analysis of scattering spectra
- Optical ﬁber probe for remote single molecule fluorescence sensing
Got the guts? Get the glory: only a few days are left before the application deadline for the PhD grants offered by the Erasmus Mundus Europhotonics doctorate program. There are several PhD positions at the Fresnel Institute in Marseille France. Get this opportunity now, next year will likely see no call.
