CONTENT

This course will cover the fundamentals of plasmonics and surface plasmons. This class will provide the basic knowledge for understanding and manipulating surface plasmons and localized plasmons. In addition, emerging applications involving various plasmonics systems will be discussed. Surface plasmons on a single interface, thin film plasmons, localized plasmons on nanoparticles, and plasmonic nano-antennas will be discussed. This course is intended to teach students the principals of plasmonics encountered in different applications. Therefore, this course can be of interest for students in many departments. In addition to homework and exams, an individual project will be assigned to students to apply their new knowledge of plasmonic systems.
