About the speaker:

Dr. Gleb Tselikov graduated from the Physical Department of Lomonosov Moscow State University with a PhD in physics in 2013. He then worked in the National Research Centre “Kurchatov institute”, Russia (2013-2015), followed by a post-doc at LP3, Aix-Marseille University, CNRS, France (2015-2019). He is currently a senior researcher at MIPT, Moscow, Russia, investigating optical properties of nanomaterials.


Recent developments in the area of resonant dielectric nanostructures have created attractive opportunities for concentrating and manipulating light at the nanoscale and the establishment of the new exciting field of all-dielectric nanophotonics. Transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs) with nanopatterned surfaces are especially promising for these tasks. Here we present 2 different approaches to synthesize nanostructures made from TMDCs. Such nanostructures demonstrate exciting optical and electronic properties inherited from TMDC crystals, due to preserved crystalline structure, which offers a unique combination of pronounced excitonic response and high refractive index value, making possible a strong concentration of electromagnetic field in the NPs.
