An expert in nanophotonics

Christos Argyropoulos is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

He’s an expert in nanophotonics, metamaterials and their applications. He has received a Diploma of Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and later continued his academic studies in Great Britain at the University of Manchester and Queen Mary University.

In 2011, he joined the University of Texas, Austin working as a Postdoctoral Fellow on analytical and computational modeling of linear and nonlinear plasmonics, thermal emitters, transformation electromagnetics and metamaterials. Between September 2013 and August 2014, he was a Postdoctoral Associate at the Center for Metamaterials and Integrated Plasmonics at Duke University.

His main research interests include computational electromagnetics, antenna engineering, transformation electromagnetics, microwave/mm-wave/THz engineering, optical communications, metamaterials and their applications.

He was part of the researchers’ team that set a speed record in molecular fluorescence. This innovative technique multiplies the current speed, making an important step toward developing multiple superfast light emitting diodes, also known as LED.
