Springer, Nov 26, 2016 - Technology & Engineering - 327 pages

This book presents the latest results of quantum properties of light in the nanostructured environment supporting surface plasmons, including waveguide quantum electrodynamics, quantum emitters, strong-coupling phenomena and lasing in plasmonic structures. Different approaches are described for controlling the emission and propagation of light with extreme light confinement and field enhancement provided by surface plasmons. Recent progress is reviewed in both experimental and theoretical investigations within quantum plasmonics, elucidating the fundamental physical phenomena involved and discussing the realization of quantum-controlled devices, including single-photon sources, transistors and ultra-compact circuitry at the nanoscale.

CV of Prof. S. I. Bozhevolnyi

Sergey I. Bozhevolnyi has received the degrees of M.Sc. in physics (1978) and Ph.D. in quantum electronics (1981) from the Moscow Physical Technical Institute, a.k.a. “FizTech”, and Dr.Scient. from Aarhus University, Denmark (1998). He has been working at Aalborg University (Denmark) in 1991-2008. During 2001–2004, he was also the Chief Technical Officer (CTO) of Micro Managed Photons A/S set up to commercialize plasmonic waveguides. Since February 2008 he is a professor at the University of Southern Denmark (Odense), heading since 2013 the Centre for Nano Optics. His research interests include linear and nonlinear nano-optics and nanophotonics, including multiple light scattering phenomena, surface plasmon polaritons and nano-plasmonic circuits. He has (co-) authored more than 400 scientific publications in peer-reviewed journals (citations > 12000, h-index: 50). Prof. Bozhevolnyi is a Fellow of the Optical Society of America.
