Symposium ED13—Novel Photonic, Electronic and Plasmonic Phenomena in Materials

Nanophotonics and plasmonics present an interesting challenge as they involve competing degrees of freedom and constraints with coupled electrons, photons, and atomic structures. Properties that emerge from correlations between these atomic, electronic and photonic phenomena determine the intermediate length and time scales that can be exploited in applications and devices. This symposium invites abstracts from experimental, theory and simulation efforts in exploring novel photonic, electronic and plasmonic effects in materials, including artificially structured metamaterials and two-dimensional metasurfaces. A particular focus will lie on the interplay between classical and quantum phenomena, and its exploitation for control of materials properties, as well as on plasmonics in 2D materials.

Interdisciplinary topics related to physics, materials science and engineering would be connected by invited speakers in order to accelerate the development of these materials toward applications in energy conversion, photodetection, sensing and quantum devices. The closing session will discuss frontiers in correlated photonic, plasmonic and electronic phenomena to motivate new work in this field.

Topics will include:

  • Mesoscale photonics and metasurfaces
  • Photonic and optoelectronic effects in 2D materials
  • Plasmonic hot carrier generation, spectroscopy and imaging
  • Materials for topological photonics
  • Integration into applications and devices
  • Theory and calculations of quantum photonic and plasmonic phenomena
  • Electronic structure descriptions of plasmonic nanostructures
  • Ultrafast and nonlinear effects in metamaterials and plasmonics
  • Quantum phenomena and realization of quantum information processing
  • Interplay of electronic and photonic effects in plasmon-enhanced catalysis
  • A tutorial complementing this symposium is tentatively planned.
