Advanced Topics in Nanophotonics – Overview

  • Overview

This course will convey advanced topics in the field of nanophotonics, in the form of a hybrid lecture/seminar style. Student assessment will be via presentations.

About the lecture

Time and place

Lecture: Tuesdays 14:00-16:00 c.t.
Tutorial: Thursdays 14:00-16:00 c.t.
Lectures at Conference Room and Tutorials at Alpenblick Seminar Room, both at the Nanoinstitut München (Königinstraße 10)

Lectures start on 16th April; Tutorials start on 18th April.

The following topics of nanophotonics will be covered

• Plasmonics: Propagating and localized surface plasmons

• Applications of polariton-based nanophotonics in ICT, sensing, and energy
• Nanophotonics of atomically thin 2D materials
• Metasurfaces and metaoptics
• Fundamental aspects of nanophotonic biosensing
• Chiral nanophotonics from plasmonic to all-dielectric
• Nanophotonics at ultrasmall distances: towards the quantum regime
• Advanced applications of nanophotonic strong coupling
• Optical microcavities
• Thermometry in nanoscale
• Single quantum emitters
• Metal nanoparticles colloids: control of optical properties
