About this Textbook

Using the thin film of light, the optical near field, that is localized on the surface of a nanometric material has removed the diffraction limit as a barrier to imaging on the nano- and atomic scales. But a paradigm shift in the concepts of optics and optical technology is required to understand the instrinsic nature of the near fields and how best to exploit them. Professors Ohstu and Kobayashi crafted Optical Near Fields on the basis of their hypothesis that the full potential for utilizing optical near fields can be realized only with novel nanometric processing, functions, and manipulation, i.e., by controlling the intrinsic interaction between nanometer-sized optical near fields and material systems, and further, atoms. The book presents physically intuitive concepts and theories for students, engineers, and scientists engaged in research in nanophotonics and atom photonics.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The main topic of this book is the optical near field, i.e., the thin film of light that is localized on the surface of a nanometric material. … the book outlines physically intuitive concepts and theories for students, engineers, and scientists who will be engaged in research in nanophotonics and atom photonics. … this book is a good and complete overview of the subject." (Olivier Van Overschelde, Physicalia, Vol. 57 (3), 2005)

"The authors introduce this work as a textbook for the new field of near field optics. … Many of the ideas expressed in the book are original, interesting and thought provoking. Physical insight and intuition plays an important role, making it enjoyable and relatively easy reading. Libraries associated with nanotechnology and/or optics should possess the book. … In conclusion, this is a nice book that is suitable as a reference and good reading for engineers, scientists and graduate students with adequate background … ." (Professor J. Shamir, Contemporary Physics, Vol. 46 (1), 2005)
