Nano-Optics deals with the interaction of light and matter at the nanoscale. Applications span from nano-optical instrumentation (i.e., confocal microscopy, near-field microscopy) and nano-optical devices (i.e., nano-lasers, optical nano-waveguides) to a full range of basic research topics on nanometer sized structures.
In this course, topics such as the fundamentals of light-matter interaction at the nanoscale, plasmonic propagation, nanowaveguides and nanolasers will be covered.
Lecture 1: Introduction to nanophotonics. Introduction to the simulation methods (Lumerical FDTD).
