Dr Junxi Zhang

Aston Institute of Photonic Technologies (AIPT)

AIPT Research Fellow
I received my Ph.D degree in condensed matter physics at Institute of Solid State Physics (ISSP), Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2006. I was appointed as an associate professor for nanomaterials at ISSP in 2009. In 2014, I joined AIPT as a Marie Curie Fellow. My research interest is focused on Plasmonic nanostructures, plasmonic functional devices, plasmonic-on-fibre structures and applications. My research project on Advanced plasmonic-on-fibre devices for optical communication and sensing applications (Plasm-on-fibre) to carry out the research in the area Plasmonics and fiber optics, which covers design and fabrication of novel fibre gratings for efficient excitation of surface plasmon polaritons; exploring nanomaterials and nanostructures for novel plasmonic functions; developing ultrafast magneto-plasmonic modulation function and devices based on novel hybrid multi-layer excitation of surface plasmon polaritons; developing next generation plasmonic-on-fibre biosensors based on hybrid fibre gratings and plasmonic nanostructures.
