Symposium EL08-Plasmonics and Metasurfaces—Design, Materials and Applications

The symposium will address the fundamentals and applications of multidimensional fields of plasmonics, nanophotonics, and metasurfaces. It will address emerging topics of hybrid nanophotonics utilizing plasmonics, metasurfaces, and two-dimensional materials to overcome existing limitations that prevent the development of practical photonic devices. The symposium seeks to provide a general overview of recent advances in new material platforms and structure design, including fabrication techniques and promising applications.
The recent discovery of new plasmonic/metasurface materials as well as layered and two-dimensional materials with low loss, tunable optical properties, and CMOS compatibility can enable a breakthrough in the field of nanophotonics, optical metamaterials, and their applications. Novel nonlinear and quantum phenomena, advanced design based on machine learning, and new simulation methods for metasurface and plasmonic materials/devices are also of interest to this symposium.

Topics will include:

  • Plasmonics and Metasurfaces
  • Alternative plasmonic and metasurface materials
  • Materials with epsilon-near-zero and hyperbolic dispersion properties
  • Active tunable plasmonics and metasurfaces
  • Biological and chemical sensing with plasmonics and metasurfaces
  • Quantum and thermal plasmonics and metasurfaces
  • Ultrafast and nonlinear effects in metamaterials and plasmonics
  • Photonics with two-dimensional materials
  • Photovoltaic applications and efficient light harvesting
  • Novel fabrication techniques for improving plasmonic/metasurface properties
