PhD position: Prof Stefan Maier

Updated: about 3 hours ago

I supervise a wide range of projects at the intersection of photonics and nanotechnology, investigating how we can efficiently control light on the nanoscale. Applications are in areas such as optoelectronics, green energy, and fundamental quantum optics. As a member of my group you will have the opportunity to work with my DECRA sub-group leader Dr. Haoran Ren, and also with my research team at Imperial College London. I graduated in Applied Physics from Caltech, and have held academic positions at the University of Bath, Imperial College London, and the University of Munich. In March 2022 I joined Monash University as the new Head of School of Physics and Astronomy. In addition to my research at Monash, I hold the Lee-Lucas Chair in Experimental Physics at Imperial College London. Our research work is highly interdisciplinary and topical, and by now 21 people from my lab hold faculty positions all over the world.

  • Nanostructured materials for efficient solar energy conversion
  • Optical metasurfaces for quantum optics (with Dr Haoran Ren)
  • Nanophotonic optical biosensors (with Dr Haoran Ren)
  • Marrying photonics with 2D materials at the nanoscale (with Dr Haoran Ren)
