Welcome to the alpha version of Lightnotes.info! We are not sure how you came across our blog, but we are glad to see you here.

The website and blog are both still under construction, which we decided to do live. Stick around to watch our work in progress, or come back few weeks later for our reviews of the most interesting things in the world of nanophotonics.

Evgeny (Eugene) Alexeev

I am an experimental physicist specialising in optical spectroscopy of two-dimensional materials and van der Waals heterostructures. I have extensive experience in ultrafast and continuous wave spectroscopy techniques, including four-wave mixing, transient absorption, two-pulse correlation, and polarisation-resolved low-temperature photoluminescence and Raman spectroscopy.

My current primary area of research is exploring rotational alignment and lattice mismatch as novel degrees of freedom in van der Waals heterostructures. My other research competences include: interlayer excitons in transition metal dichalcogenide heterostructures, excitonic effects in two-dimensional semiconductors, hot carrier luminescence in graphene, controlled modification of graphene with pulsed laser excitation.
