Welcome to the personal homepage of Professor N. Asger Mortensen.

I was recently called by SDU to become a professor at the Mads Clausen Institute and I am now in the process of joining Center for Nano Optics. Prior to that I was a professor (faculty since 2004) at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) from where I also received the MSc (1998), PhD (2001), and Dr. Techn. (2006) degrees. I am a recently announced Villum Investigator and I am also a Fellow of OSA and SPIE (complete curiculum vitae).

My research focus is on new wave phenomena and light-matter interactions in artificially structured materials. In particular, I am interested in situations where classical electrodynamics is interfacing regimes with quantum physics. The list of past and present research topics includes quantum electron transport in mesoscopic systems, photonic bandgap & microstructured optical fibers, nanofluidics & optofluidics, nanophotonics & slow-light photonic crystals, metamaterials, and nanoplasmonics.
