About the book
Plasmonics has gained massive research interest during the last few years. It covers the generation, detection, and manipulation of signals at optical frequencies along with metal-dielectric interfaces in the nanometer scale. The number of applications is increasing at a fast pace. This book aims to present the fundamental theory, applications, and a collection of recent advances in the broad field of plasmonics. Current progress and latest breakthroughs in emergent applications in sensing, telecommunication, and microscopy are of interest to this book. This includes theory, modeling, and design, applications in practical devices, fabrication, characterization, and measurement.
The book will aim to cover also the synthesis and optical properties of noble metal nanostructures, patterned surfaces, continuous or grated surfaces, and devices. This book intends to provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of the current state-of-the-art in plasmonic microscopy, surface-enhanced spectroscopic properties, such as Raman scattering or fluorescence, as well developments in techniques such as surface plasmon resonance and near-field scanning optical microscopy but also data transmission, plasmonic light modulators, and optoplasmonic networks.
