Plasmonics, Photonic Crystals, Metamaterials and Sub-Wavelength Resolution

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,
B.Di Bartolo, S.Gaponenko, A. Heisterkamp, U. Lemmer, E.Mazur,
U.Nienhaus, L.Novotny, C. Soukoulis, M. I. Stockman, A.P.Voitovich,
M.Wegener, J.P.Wolf and A. Zheltikov.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
