Welcome to the personal homepage of Professor N. Asger Mortensen

My research group is affiliated with the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) from where I also received the MSc, PhD, and Dr. Techn. degrees in 1998, 2001, and 2006, respectively (complete curiculum vitae).

My research focus is on new wave phenomena and light-matter interactions in artificially structured materials. 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.

Interested in the, so far, broadest impact of my work? Please consider the exciting work [PNAS 111, 11932 (2014)] by the 2015 Ig Nobel Prize Winners. For a perspective on my research, see also a recent interview on fundamental research @ ing.dk (in Danish).
