ERC Starting Grant for Rachel Grange

RachelGrange_ERC
Rachel Grange, a FAST PI in MUST, is one of six researchers from ETH Zurich who have been awarded one of these prestigious grants this year. She is an Assistant Professor in Photonics at the Institute for Quantum Electronics in the Department of Physics. With her ERC Starting Grant, she will research strategies to enhance nonlinear optical signal in oxide nanomaterials to avoid using high power sources and large interaction length. The key idea is to demonstrate strong optical signals in nano-oxides with the material itself and without involving any hybrid effects from other materials such as metals that are lossy. She will investigate two Perovskite nanostructures, barium titanate nanoparticles and lithium niobate nanowires. The emphasis is not only on the photonic properties but also on the fabrication challenges of oxides that are difficult to shape. Her work will foster applications in biology as imaging markers and in optoelectronics as integrated compact optical devices.
