THE DIRECTOR OF THE INSTITUTE ANNOUNCES AN OPEN COMPETITION FOR THE POST OF ADJUNCT - ASSISTANT PROFESSOR (R2) IN THE TEAM no 4 /DEPARTMENT, 59/2021
The candidate will conduct research on the optical properties of hybrid nanostructures, which include molecular systems and metallic nanostructures. The aim of the research is to describe the mechanisms of energy transfer and propagation of plasmonic excitations in elongated metallic nanostructures, to determine the influence of various parameters, both spectral and morphological, on the possibility of controlling the efficiency of these processes.
