Gordon Research Conference : Plasmonics

26 Août 2008 , Rédigé par JW Publié dans #Nanophotonics pick

Back from the Plasmonics GRC in Tilton NH last July. As a synthesis, here is my selection of the top 10 hot stuff / challenges in the field for the next years, from the list that was written at the end of the meeting. The list was voluntary limited to ten items :

  • Reproducible SERS and hot spot enhancement quantification
  • Plasmonic structures inside bio cells
  • Negative index devices
  • Circuits models : new systems ?
  • Plasmon laser / SPASER
  • Plasmonics in energy sciences 
  • Role of disorder in plasmonics 
  • Non linear effects in plasmonics
  • Graphene plasmons
  • Plasmons in quantum information
