Welcome to the Gather Lab!

We are active in several areas of soft matter photonics.

Biophotonics & biophysics:

  • bio-derived optical structures and devices
  • biological lasers (living lasers)
  • optical devices based of fluorescent proteins
  • cellular biomechanics
  • nanophotonic biosensors

Organic electronics / OLEDs:

  • nano- and micro-patterning of organic semiconductors
  • OLED optics and outcoupling, nano-photonic structures
  • spectroscopy and molecular orientation
  • organic electronics in lab-on-chip systems
  • white OLEDs


  • plasmonic lasers / spasers
  • optical amplification
  • ‘molecular’ plasmonics
  • organic/inorganic hybrid systems
  • plasmonic waveguides and sensors
