Research Interests

Andrew's research has two themes. The first concerns dynamical processes in semiconductors studied with THz radiation generated by femtosecond interband excitation. Highlights include the identification of the mechanisms of THz emission, the coherent control of intra-band processes, and studies of the creation and stability of coherent excitations. The second theme is development of THz devices for spectroscopy, imaging and sensing, with improved dynamic range and bandwidth. Current research, with Maier, is aimed at developing novel THz waveguides using highly confined ‘spoof’ plasmons on metamaterial surfaces.
