Introduction and some links:

Our work relates to materials and nanosystems that show an interplay of photons with electronic correlations, topological effects, and metrological aspects.

Fractionalized modes: The Kiteav model with anisotropic exchange on a honeycomb-like lattice predicts the existence of topological excitations with fractionalized quantum statistics. Such modes have recently been predicted and now observed experimentally in quasi-3D coordinated Iridium oxides, see Nature Commun., (2016).


Mercury a serious health thread ... can be detected using Ag nanoparticles with a turn on ultrasensitive fluorescence sensor and a linear regime from 0 to 1 ppb, P. K. Sarkar, et al., ACS Sensors (2016). 


Plexcitons in a periodic structure... periodic arrays of plasmonic Au wires in proximity to a dye shows strong coupling to molecular excitons. Such plexcitons can be modelled in some microscopic approach using a Zubarev Green's function method following the work of Manjavacas et al.., preprint by Liu Bo, et al. (2016). 


The Dance of DNA... Although many forms of dynamical behaviour of proteins under allosteric interactions with effectors are predicted, little evidence of dynamics in the interaction has been reported. Here, we demonstrate the ultrafast dynamics of the allosteric interaction of the Gal repressor (GalR) protein dimer with DNA operator sequences using time resolved optics , see S. Choudhury, et al. ChemBioChem (2016)
