Plasmonics is entering the curriculum of many universities, either as a stand alone subject, or as part of some course or courses. Nanotechnology institutes have been, and are being, established in universities, in which plasmonics is a significant topic of research. Modern Plasmonics offers a comprehensive presentation of the properties of surface plasmon polaritons, in systems of different structures and various natures, e.g. active, nonlinear, graded, theoretical/computational and experimental techniques for studying them, and their use in a variety of applications.
- Contains material not found in existing books on plasmonics, including basic properties of these surface waves, theoretical/computational and experimental approaches, and new applications of them
- Each chapter is written by an expert in the subject to which it is devoted
- Emphasis on applications of plasmonics that have been realized, not just predicted or proposed
"... a comprehensive overview that links the most up-to-date results with the knowledge base acquired over more than a century in the understanding of electromagnetic waves localized at metal surfaces." --Optics and Photonics News, February 2015
