EM-lab seminar: Waveguide theory for artificial materials and plasmonics

​Welcome to a seminar held by the Electromagnetics Laboratory (abbreviated EM-Lab) , which is an assembly of senior researchers and teachers with activities in the scientific field of electromagnetics. EM-Lab is hosted by the Department of Electrical Engineering at Chalmers.​   

Speaker: Assistant Professor Mariana Dalarsson, Department of Physics and Electrical Engineering, Linnaeus University, Växjö, Sweden

Title: Waveguide theory for artificial materials and plasmonics

Abstract: In this seminar, Dr. Mariana Dalarsson will present her background and research work. Mariana is a researcher and teacher in Physics and Electromagnetic Theory, at the Department of Physics and Electrical Engineering at Linnaeus University, Sweden. Her research interests include electromagnetic scattering and absorption, inverse problems, electromagnetics of stratified media, double-negative metamaterials, mathematical physics, etc. The presentation will have a special focus on her most recent research project on developing new theory for direct and inverse waveguide problems involving thin samples of materials having extraordinary electromagnetic properties. This research has an important medical application towards the potential of achieving a localized electrophoretic heating of an electrically charged gold nanoparticle (GNP) suspension as a radiotherapeutic hyperthermia based method to treat cancer. In particular, the aim of the project is to develop methods for identifying the model parameters associated with thin GNP-treated cell line substrates inserted in a waveguide. The identified parameters can then be used to assess the feasibility, as well as to provide a design tool, for the aforementioned medical application.
