Research Assistant Professor
Dr. Mohamed Ameen Poyli joined as Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics and Nanotechnology at SRM Institute of Science and Technology (formerly known as SRM University) in June 2016. He graduated with Doctor of Philosophy degree in Physics from The University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), San Sebastian, Spain. During PhD period, he was involved in theoretical and computational study of optical response of novel nanomaterials. In this period, he worked in the Theory of Nanophotonics Group at the Center for Materials Physics (CFM) and in Donostia International Physics Center (DIPC) at San Sebastian. Dr. Poyli has a master degree in Physics from the Bharathidasan University, Tiruchirappalli, India and a masters in Nanoscience from The Universityof the Basque Country, San Sebastian, Spain.
My research involves theoretical modelling of the optical response nanostructures of various novel materials for the purpose of optimizing their response towards electromagnetic radiation. For this purpose, I use standard Maxwell’s solvers for numerical simulations and Matlab and similar softwares for the implementation of analytical expressions. I focus on the following topics:
Since silicon is a widely used material in photonic applications, the study of interplay of electric and magnetic resonances as well as their coupling with electric and magnetic transitions in material would find applications in various fields of silicon photonics like solar light harvesting, perfect absorbing materials, etc.
I am interested in the optical excitation of collective electric and magnetic oscillations in Topological Insulator nanostructures. I also study the optimization of the response of two-dimensional nanostructures for efficient coupling of the collective modes with localized emitters. Coupling of these collective modes with electric and magnetic transitions in materials will allow for the selective probing of the transitions in the terahertz regime of electromagnetic spectrum. Probing of these transitions are of extreme interest as many molecules and materials has characteristic energy levels in the terahertz regime of the spectrum.
