About this book

With the rapid technical advancement of nanoscale fabrication, the science of optics has recently undergone a renaissance with the characterization of new and distinctive kinds of photonic interaction. Beyond the well-known plasmonic processes, many of these effects also arise from intricate local field effects associated with surfaces, where the surface morphology determines the detailed electromagnetic behavior. As such interactions move into practical device applications across the globe, this book presents an overview of some cutting edge developments, contributed by members of several highly renowned research groups. Copiously illustrated and with extensive references to original literature, Frontiers in Surface Nanophotonics will appeal to a wide readership with interests in optics, materials science and nanotechnology.

About the authors

David Andrews, Professor of Chemical Physics at the University of East Anglia, conducts fundamental research in photonics and energy transport, optomechanical forces and nonlinear optics. He has two hundred research papers and nine other books to his name. Andrews is a Fellow of the SPIE, the International Society for Optical Engineering, and also of the Royal Society of Chemistry, and the Institute of Physics. He is Chair of the SPIE Nanotechnology Technical Group, and the Nanophotonics conference at Photonics Europe.

Zeno Gaburro, received his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 1998. Currently he is senior researcher in photonics at the University of Trento, Italy. He has published over 60 research papers in international journals, and since 2002 he chairs a symposium at the annual meeting of SPIE.
