The next seminar of the theme “nanophotonics and components” will take place on January, Tuesday 24 at 09:30 a.m. in Pierre Cotton’s room.

Andrea BALDI from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam will visit Fresnel and he will give a seminar about "Plasmonic photochemistry : targeted heating with metal nanoparticles"

Abstract : Metal nanoparticles strongly absorb light thanks to light-driven oscillations of their free electrons called plasmon resonances. The decay of these resonances can be used to drive chemical reactions via photothermal heating of the surrounding environment. In this talk, I will cover fundamental aspects of plasmonics and show two examples from our group’s work on how the spatial and temporal control of plasmonic photothermal effects can drive nanomaterial synthesis and heterogeneous catalysis.
