Nicolae C. Panoiu received the B.Sc. degree in Physics and the M.S. degree in Theoretical Physics from the University of Bucharest, and the Ph.D. degree in Physics from New York University. He then joined Columbia University as a postdoctoral fellow and then promoted to assistant and associated research scientist

Research interests are broadly interdisciplinary, branching in a range of topics in engineering, physics, and applied mathematics. During the last years he has been involved in research on optical properties of periodically nanostructured materials, with a particular interest in their applications to nanophotonics and optoelectronic nanodevices. His main research topics include, among others:

  • silicon (nonlinear) photonics – modelling and device applications
  • metamaterials with negative index of refraction
  • nonlinear photonic crystals
  • optical properties of plasmonic nanostructures
  • optical solitons in media with quadratic or cubic nonlinearities
  • optical solitons in fibres, soliton-WDM
  • FDTD modelling of VCSELSs and other active photonic devices
