Get an intuition and basic knowledge in plasmonics, an active field with applications in electromagnetics, photonics and chemistry.
Plasmons are coherent oscillations of electrons happening at the surface and in the volume of materials.
The lecture starts with an introduction of possible applications of plasmonics, and introduces the fundamentals using the classical theory of electromagnetics. Derivation of possible electromagnetic modes at the interface of materials and in nanoparticles will be presented, along with the study of Mie scattering theory. Emphasis will be put on the importance of taking damping into account which is now necessary to progress in this field. An overview of the future of plasmonics, and the link with quantum mechanics will be also mentioned for curiosity.
Electrodynamics and basic knowledge about differential equations.
