Nanophotonics: Fabrications and Application of Nanoscale Optics to Novel Photonic Devices

Description

Nanophotonics is a generic technology that can overcome the deadlock of conventional photonics, in which the size is limited by diffraction limits of light. Based on interdisciplinary studies including condensed-matter physics, optical science, and quantum field theory, nanoscale materials and optical energy transfer at nanoscale have been extensively studied. The recent development on nanoscale optics opens up new concept of nanoscale optical theory, as an example dressed photon theory, and a variety of new phenomena have been investigated. The results of the basic research have been applied to numerous applications, including nanometer-sized photonic devices, nanoscale fabrication techniques, and highly efficient energy conversion.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that will stimulate the continuing efforts to understand the light-matter interaction at nanoscale and related applications. We are particularly interested in articles describing the new research direction of nanophotonics with an interdisciplinary approach such as chemistry and biophotonics.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Fundamental physics on nanoscale optics
  • Recent developments in optoelectronic devices, including photovoltaic device, sensors, photodetectors, light emitting diodes, and lasers
  • Latest technologies for nanoscale photonic device
  • Recent advances in nanoscale fabrication
  • New application of nanophotonics, including biophotonics and nanofluidics
  • Recent developments in scanning microscopy, including scanning optical microscopy (NSOM) and photoassisted scanning tunnelling microscopy
  • New application of plasmonics and metamaterial
