Manjavacas Group

Lunch with the Manjavacas Research Group

Welcome to the Nanophotonics Theory group at the University of New Mexico!

The main goals of our research are:
1. To understand the fundamentals of the light-matter interaction at the nanoscale
2. To discover new physical phenomena in the field of nanophotonics
3. To propose and design new applications exploiting these advances

Join us! We are looking for highly motivated, talented, and creative graduate and undergraduate students to join our research group!
