Cosmin Farcău is senior researcher at the National Institute for Research and Development of Isotopic and Molecular Technologies (INCDTIM) and Babeș-Bolyai University, in Cluj-Napoca,
Romania, leader of the Laser-Induced Processes team and member of the Scientific Council of INCDTIM. His research interests include: self-assembly of colloidal nano- and micro-particles,
fabrication of nanostructured metal-dielectric films by colloidal self-assembly and colloidal lithography, optical properties of plasmonic nanostructures, enhanced molecular optical processes (fluorescence, Raman) and development of optical/electrical sensors for environmental contaminants.
