Professor & Villum Investigator N. Asger Mortensen

[ CV ] [ Publications ] [ arXiv preprints ]

I was recently called by the University of Southern Denmark (SDU) to become a professor at the Mads Clausen Institute and I am now in the process of joining SDU Center for Nano Optics. Prior to that I was a professor at the Technical University of Denmark (faculty since 2004) from where I also obtained the MSc (1998), PhD (2001) and Dr. Techn. (2006) degrees. I am a recently announced Villum Investigator and I am also a fellow of OSA and SPIE.

My research focus is on new wave phenomena and light-matter interactions in artificially structured materials. In particular, I am interested in situations where classical electrodynamics is interfacing regimes with quantum physics (see recent perspective in Nanophotonics). The list of past and present research topics includes quantum electron transport in mesoscopic systems, photonic bandgap & microstructured optical fibers, nanofluidics & optofluidics, nanophotonics & slow-light photonic crystals, metamaterials, and nanoplasmonics.
