Welcome to my website!

My name is Martijn Wubs and I am a Dutch physicist working as an associate professor at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) in the Structured Electromagnetic Materials Theory group.

With my wife and three children I live in Charlottenlund, in between DTU and downtown Copenhagen.                              

Research: Nanophotonics, quantum optics, metamaterials

  • Nanophotonics: nonlocal response and beyond in nanoplasmonics

  • Quantum optics: nanoscale quantum optics, quantum plasmonics, quantum optics in metamaterials

  • Solid-state quantum information: driven and open quantum systems, collective physics
