About this book

Metamaterials and plasmonics are cross-disciplinary fields that are emerging into the mainstream of many scientific areas. Examples of scientific and technical fields which are concerned are electrical engineering, micro- and nanotechnology, microwave engineering, optics, optoelectronics, and semiconductor technologies. In plasmonics, the interplay between propagating electromagnetic waves and free-electron oscillations in materials are exploited to create new components and applications. On the other hand, metamaterials refer to artificial composites in which small artificial elements, through their collective interaction, creates a desired and unexpected macroscopic response function that is not present in the constituent materials.

This book charts the state of the art of these fields. In May 2008, world-leading experts in metamaterials and plasmonics gathered into a NATO Advanced Research Workshop in Marrakech, Morocco. The present book contains extended versions of 22 of the presentations held in the workshop, covering the general aspects of the field, as well as design and modelling questions of plasmonics and metamaterials, fabrication issues, and applications like absorbers and antennas.

Reviews

From the reviews: “Metamaterials and plasmonics are hot topics of modern optics, each accounting for hundreds of papers in the past few years. This book analyzes the synergies between the two areas of research. … The book contains seven parts, each of which includes contributions by experts in the field addressing devices and applications of plasmonics or metamaterials. … This book is clear and accessible to a large number of readers. … a valuable asset to any library of a university.” (Daniela Dragoman, Optics & Photonics News, September, 2009)
