Fields of expertise
|Olivier J.F. Martin received the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in physics in 1989 and 1994, respectively, from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland. In 1989, he joined IBM Zurich Research Laboratory, where he investigated thermal and optical properties of semiconductor laser diodes. Between 1994 and 1997 he was a research staff member at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich (ETHZ). In 1997 he received a Lecturer fellowship from the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF). During the period 1996-1999, he spent a year and a half in the U.S.A., as invited scientist at the University of California in San Diego (UCSD). In 2001 he received a Professorship grant from the SNSF and became Professor of Nano-Optics at the ETHZ. In 2003, he was appointed Professor of Nanophotonics and Optical Signal Processing at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne (EPFL), where he is currently head of the Nanophotonics and Metrology Laboratory and Director of the Microengineering Section.|
The research of Olivier J.F. Martin focuses on the interactions of electromagnetic fields with low dimension systems, especially in the optical regime. Plasmonics is at the heart of his current research interest, with applications in plasmonic antennas and biosensing. A much more detailed description is available on the website of the Nanophotonics & Metrology Laboratory.
Dr. Martin has authored or co-authored over 500 scientific contributions including over 250 articles in peer-reviewed journals. He also holds a handful of patents and invention disclosures. In 1999 he received the Latsis University prize for contributions to the study of near-field optics and photonic bandgap structures.
Olivier J.F. Martin regularily contributes to scientific committees for international conferences. In 2005 he co-organized the Latsis Symposium Latsis on negative refraction (website); in 2006 he has organized the Engelberg meeting on Molecular plasmonic devices as well as the 9th International conference on near-field optics, nanophotonics and related technics (NFO-9). He had initiated the COST MP0803 Plasmonic Components and Devices which gathered most European research groups working in the field of plasmonics, with applications in optical signal processing and biosensing.
In 2016 Olivier J.F. Martin received an ERC Advanced Grant on the utilization of plasmonic forces to fabricate nanostructures and design tomorrow's Nanofactory.
In his free time he enjoys sailing (when there is wind...), gardening (when there is no wind...) and playing music.
