Vibrational Encounters – Phonon Polaritons Meet Molecules

Nature Photonics
23/11/2020

Researchers from CIC nanoGUNE BRTA (San Sebastian, Spain), in collaboration with the Donostia International Physics Center (San Sebastián, Spain) and the University of Oviedo (Spain) employed a spectroscopic nanoimaging technique to study how infrared nanolight - in form of phonon polaritons - and molecular vibrations interact with each other. The images reveal that vibrational strong coupling can be achieved, which is a phenomenon that recently attracts wide attention for its potential use to control fundamental physical and chemical material properties. The result could lead the development of a novel platform for on-chip chemical identification of tiny amounts of molecules and for studying fundamental aspects of strong coupling phenomena on the nanometer scale. The work has been published in Nature Photonics (DOI: 10.1038/s41566-020-00725-3).

nanoGUNE reaches new depths in infrared nanospectroscopy

20/07/2020

Researchers from the Nanooptics Group at CIC nanoGUNE demonstrate that nanoscale infrared imaging – which is established as a surface-sensitive technique – can be employed for chemical nanoidentification of materials that are located up to 100 nm below the surface. The results further show that the infrared signatures of thin surface layers differ from that of subsurface layers of the same material, which can be exploited to distinguish the two cases. The findings, recently published in Nature Communications, push the technique one important step further to quantitative chemometrics at the nanoscale in three dimensions.

Un equipo internacional liderado por investigadores de la Universidad de Oviedo y del Centro de Investigación en Nanomateriales y Nanotecnología (CINN-CSIC), junto con científicos de los centros de investigación vascos CIC nanoGUNE, Donostia Internatioanl Physics Center (DIPC), Centro de Física de Materiales (CFM, CSIC-UPV/EHU), y colaboradores internacionales de la Academia de Ciencias de China, la Universidad Case Western Reserve (EE.UU.), el Instituto Austríaco de Tecnología, el Centro de Materiales de París y la Universidad de Tokio han descubierto un método eficaz para controlar la frecuencia de la luz confinada en la nanoescala. Los resultados se publicaron recientemente en Nature Materials.

CIC nanoGUNE works on infrared sensing and photodetectors within GrapheneCore3

04/05/2020

The Nanooptics Group of CIC nanoGUNE is involved in the Work Package 8: Photonics and Optoelectronics in the Graphene Flagship Core 3 project, the fourth funding cycle of the €1 Billion research initiative funded by the European Commission. The mission of Work Package Photonics and Optoelectronics is to develop GRM-based components for photonic and optoelectronic applications and to integrate them into photonic circuits, imaging arrays and optical sensors. NanoGUNE works on infrared sensing and is involved in infrared and terahertz detectors.

Researchers discover directional and long-lived nanolight in a 2D material

Nanolight
25/10/2018

An international team led by researchers from Monash University (Melbourne, Australia), University of Oviedo (Asturias, Spain), CIC nanoGUNE (San Sebastián, Spain), and Soochow University (Suzhou, China) discover squeezed light ('nanolight') in the nanoscale that propagates only in specific directions along thin slabs of molybdenum trioxide – a natural anisotropic 2D material –. Besides its unique directional character, this nanolight lives for an exceptionally long time, and thus could find applications in signal processing, sensing or heat management at the nanoscale.

Phononic SEIRA - Enhancing light-molecule interactions via crystal lattice vibrations

03/04/2018

Researchers from CIC-nanoGUNE (San Sebastián, Spain), in collaboration with the Donostia International Physics Center (San Sebastián, Spain), Materials Physics Center (CFM, CSIC-UPV/EHU, San Sebastián, Spain) and University of Oviedo demonstrate a new way to strongly couple infrared light and molecular vibrations, by utilizing phonon polariton nanoresonators made of hexagonal boron nitride, a Van der Waals material. The results published in Light: Science & Applications open new avenues for fundamental studies of vibrational strong coupling, as well as for the development of novel infrared sensors for chemical recognition of very small amounts of molecules.
