Welcome to the personal homepage of Professor N. Asger Mortensen. I am 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 also a Fellow of OSA and SPIE (complete curiculum vitae).

My research group is affiliated with the Department of Photonics Engineering (DTU Fotonik) and the CoE for Nanostructured Graphene (CNG).

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.
