If you are interested in performing research in the area of nanophotonics (the interaction of photons with the micron-meter and nanometer scale devices), solar energy, metamaterials, bio-chemical sensors you can contact with me. We encourage the interested students to apply MSc/PhD program in the Electrical Engineering department at TOBB ETU. An undergraduate degree in electrical engineering or physics is required. Background in electromagnetics and optics is advantegous but not a priori condition performing research in photonics area.
For additional information, please contact Dr. Hamza Kurt via e-mail at hkurt[at]

An invited paper is published in Journal of the European Optical Society: Rapid Publications
