NANO-OPTICS FOR ENHANCING LIGHT-MATTER INTERACTIONS ON A MOLECULAR SCALE:
Plasmonics, Photonic Crystals, Metamaterials and Sub-Wavelength Resolution
AN ADVANCED STUDY INSTITUTE
At the "Ettore Majorana" International Center for Scientific Culture in Erice (Trapani), Italy.
June 30 – July 15, 2011
This course will provide a comprehensive overview of the rapidly
expanding field of nano-optics and outline the current state-of-the-art,
both in experimental fabrication and characterization as well as in the
theoretical description. It will bring together physicists, chemists,
engineers, and biologists. It will start from the consideration of
fundamental principles, and will reach the current frontiers of research
in a systematic and didactic fashion.
The Institute will provide the participants with an opportunity to
present their research work in the form of short seminars or posters.
Lecturers: T. Andrew, S. Arnold, H.Atwater, J.W. Bowen, M.J. Naughton,
