Tutorials and grading
Your total grade will be composed of the grades of 3 exercise sheets distributed along the semester and the grade of a 12-15 minutes long talk you'll give on a topic defined 2 weeks before the talk. Specifically, the talk presentation will make up 70% of your grade while the grades of your handed-in exercise sheets make up the remaining 30%.
The following topics of nanophotonics will be covered
- Review of macroscopic electromagnetism, dielectric function, evanescent fields
- Propagation, focusing, resolution and localization
- Confined light: photonic crystals and optical microcavities
- Confined matter: quantum effects on the electronic structure of matter
- Dipolar interactions I: quantum emitters, single photon sources
- Dipolar interactions II: weak and strong coupling, photonic density of states
- Dielectric nanocavities I: Mie modes
- Dielectric nanocavities II: bound states in the continuum
- Molecular sensing
- Plasmonics I: propagating surface plasmons
- Plasmonics II: localized surface plasmons and optical antennas
- Metamaterials and metasurfaces
In addition, selected topics of current research will be discussed.
