Plasmon planar optics: fundamentals and applications
When: December 20, 17:00
Where: Skoltech, room 402
ABSTRACT: The key advantage of plasmonics is in pushing our control of light down to the nanoscale. Here we demonstrate the development of the basic elements of plasmon planar optics: plasmon optics media, focusing and reﬂecting plasmon elements, plasmonic interferometer, plasmonic autocorrelator, planar plasmonic quantum generator and plasmonic sensors. We will show that the use of modern approaches to the development of plasmon optics elements based on the use of single-crystal metal surfaces of ultra-high quality leads to substantial breakthrough in the ﬁeld. The fundamental and technical problems of plasmon planar optics are discussed. Their numerous applications are considered.
