Description:

The Winter College will present the new advances in nano-optics and nanophotonics with emphasis on plasmon physics and plasmonic devices. Surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs) are electromagnetic excitations on the surface of a good metal whose electromagnetic field is confined to the vicinity of the dielectric-metal interface. This confinement leads to an enhancement of the electromagnetic field at the interface, and the resulting increase in sensitivity is extensively used in chemo- and bio-sensors. The field enhancement is also responsible for surface enhancement of optical phenomena such as Raman scattering, second harmonic generation, fluorescence, etc. Light manipulation using SPPs can be effectively reduced from three to two dimensions and SPPs also allow scaling down optical and electronic devices to nanometric dimensions as well as providing a great deal of flexibility in photonic integration in all-optical circuits. Innovative integrated components combining photonics and electronics can therefore be devised and the manipulation of optical signals on a sub-wavelength scale is made possible. They play a role in an increasing number of applications, including in the field of energy, and new lasers and nonlinear devices are possible. Plasmons are also needed to explain the behavior of nanoscale systems and devices.

MAIN TOPICS
* Introduction to nano-optics
* Basic plasmon physics
* Nonlinear optics at nanoscale
* Modelling and simulation
* Experimental methods and tools
* Techniques to make structures
* Quantum plasmonics
* Applications: bio-sensors, energy, communications
* Nano lasers and nonlinear devices
