Selected Topics in Solid-State Electronics: Subwavelength Nanophotonics and Plasmonics

ECE 547B/MSE 557

Info tab content
This introductory graduate course focuses on theory and applications of subwavelength optical elements (SOEs) that have features smaller than the wavelength of light, and work with principles differently from traditional and diffractive optics, offering unique optical capabilities. For example, SOEs create new functionality ultra-thin optical systems in a thickness < 1 micron. The main course topics include: (1) rigorous Maxwell theory for SOEs, (2) mean-field theory for SOEs, (3) non-resonant SOEs, (4) resonant SOEs (photonic crystals), (5) nano-plasmonics, and (6) active optical devices using SOE.
