Plasmonic Nanoguides and Circuits

Research and Market, has announced the addition of Pan Stanford Publishing Pte. Ltd.'s new report "Plasmonic Nanoguides and Circuits" to their offering.

Modern communication systems dealing with huge amounts of data at ever increasing speed try to utilize the best aspects of electronic and optical circuits. Electronic circuits are tiny but their operation speed is limited, whereas optical circuits are extremely fast but their sizes are limited by diffraction. Waveguide components utilizing surface plasmon (SP) modes were found to combine huge optical bandwidth and compactness of electronics, and plasmonics thereby became considered as the next chip-scale technology.

In this book, we concentrate on the SP waveguide configurations ensuring nanoscale confinement and review the current status of this rapidly emerging field, considering different configurations being developed for nanoscale plasmonic guides and circuits. Both fundamental physics and application aspects of plasmonics are reviewed in detail by world-leading experts.

A unique feature of this book is its strong focus on a particular subfield of plasmonics dealing with subwavelength (nanoscale) waveguiding, an area which is especially important in view of explosively growing interest to plasmonic interconnects and nanocircuits. This research direction came to the fore very recently, driven by the ever increasing demand of faster and smaller interconnects to be used inside computer chips, and stimulated by the progress in our understanding of basic physical phenomena involved in SP excitation, imaging and manipulation.

Readership: Advanced graduate and postgraduate students, researchers and engineers interested in the physics of surface plasmons and their use for nanoscale photonics.

Key Features:

  • Covers an important field that is driven by the need communication systems to deliver larger amounts of data at an ever increasing speed
  • Focuses on a particular subfield of plasmonics that deals with subwavelength (nanoscale) waveguiding, a rapidly developing area of plasmonic interconnects and nanocircuits
  • Contains a good balance of chapters covering the essential fundamentals and applications by prominent researchers
