Filippos Harlaftis acquired his MPhil in the field of Nanophotonics at Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, under the supervision of Professor J. Baumberg (2022). He received his BSc from the Physics Department of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (2020). His diploma thesis is “An analytical study of the dispersion properties and optical forces in plasmonic and metamaterial waveguides”, conducted under the supervision of Dr. K. L. Tsakmakidis. Since 2023, he is working as a research associate at the N.C.S.R Demokritos, under the supervision of Dr. Stergiopoulos. His current research activity focuses on the electrical characterization and stability testing of perovskite solar cells. He is lead author of the paper “Trapping plasmonic nanoparticles with MHz electric fields” (Applied Physics Letters, 2022).
