We proudly present the PhD thesis:

Shaping the interplay of free electrons
and light with optical metasurfaces

Matthias Liebtrau

We explore nano-textured optical metasurfaces as a tool to mediate and control the coherent interaction of free electrons and light.

1. Introduction


2. Spontaneous and stimulated
electron-photon interactions
in nanoscale plasmonic near fields


3. Cylindrical metalens for generation
and focusing of free-electron radiation


4. Free-electron-light coupling in an
optical fibre-integrated metagrating


5. Low-energy electron spectroscopy
in the scanning electron microscope
