Principles of Nano-Optics
Click here for further information.
Nano-optics is the study of optical phenomena and techniques on the nanometer
scale, that is, near or beyond the diffraction limit of light. It is an emerging
field of study, motivated by the rapid advance of nanoscience and nanotechnology
which require adequate tools and strategies for fabrication, manipulation and
characterization at this scale. In Principles of Nano-Optics the authors provide
a comprehensive overview of the theoretical and experimental concepts necessary
to understand and work in nano-optics. With a very broad perspective, they cover
optical phenomena relevant to the nanoscale across diverse areas ranging from
quantum optics to biophysics, introducing and extensively describing all of
the significant methods. This is the first textbook specifically on nano-optics.
Written for graduate students who want to enter the field, it includes problem
sets to reinforce and extend the discussion. It is also a valuable reference
for researchers and course teachers.
