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.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Marijana Josipovic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
