Nanophotonic methods provide intriguing options for manipulating scintillation phenomena. We will outline recent developments in this domain, along with our theoretical framework for modeling these occurrences, supported by our experimental findings. Additionally, Smith-Purcell radiation, characterized by fast electrons interacting with nano-structured materials to produce light, offers a broad spectrum of possibilities for creation of novel light sources. We will discuss our new theoretical framework designed to comprehend and tailor such phenomena, as well as our techniques for boosting Smith-Purcell radiation.

About Professor Marin Soljačić’s Group at MIT
Technological advances of the past decade have enabled the control of the material structure at length-scales smaller than the wavelength of light. This enabled creation of new material-systems (e.g. photonic crystals, meta-materials, or various surface plasmon systems), whose optical properties are dramatically different than those of any naturally occurring material. Our research interests are in exploring the new and exciting physical phenomena enabled by such materials. Our work is roughly equally split between theoretical and experimental studies.
