Plasmonic Materials and Metastructures: Fundamentals, Current Status, and Perspectives (Paperback)

Awaiting publication


Plasmonic Materials and Metastructures: Fundamentals, Current Status, and Perspectives reviews the current status and emerging trends in the development of conventional and alternative plasmonic materials. Sections cover fundamentals and emerging trends of plasmonic materials development, including synthesis strategies (chemical and physical) and optical characterization techniques. Next, the book addresses fundamentals, properties, remaining barriers for commercial translation, and the latest advances and opportunities for conventional noble metal plasmonic materials. Fundamentals and advances for alternative plasmonic materials are also reviewed, including two-dimensional hybrid materials composed of graphene, monolayer transition metal dichalcogenides, boron nitride, etc.

In addition, other sections cover applications of plasmonic metastructures enabled by plasmonic materials with improved material properties and newly discovered functionalities. Applications reviewed include quantum plasmonics, topological plasmonics, chiral plasmonics, nanolasers, imaging (metalens), active, and integrated technologies.

Shangjr Gwo received his PhD in physics from the University of Texas at Austin, USA in 1993. He is currently a distinguished chair professor of physics at National Tsing-Hua University, Hsinchu, Taiwan, and serves as the director of the Research Center for Applied Sciences in Academia Sinica, Nankang, Taiwan. His research interests include semiconductor material physics, nanophotonics, plasmonics, and surface/interface science. His research group works extensively on plasmonic metamaterials and metasurfaces, 2D materials, linear and nonlinear plasmonic metasurfaces, plasmonic nanolasers, surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy, and III-nitride nanostructure light-emitting devices. Shangjr Gwo is an elected fellow of the American Physical Society and the Physical Society of the Republic of China (Taiwan). Dr. Andrea Alu is the Founding Director and Einstein Professor at the Photonics Initiative, CUNY Advanced Science Research Center, St Nicholas Terrace, NY, USA. He received his Laurea (2001) and PhD (2007) from the University of Roma Tre, Italy, and, after a postdoc at the University of Pennsylvania, he joined the faculty of the University of Texas at Austin in 2009, where he was the Temple Foundation Endowed Professor until 2018. His research interests span over metamaterials, plasmonics, nano-optics, electromagnetics and acoustics. Dr. Alu is a Fellow of NAI, IEEE, AAAS, OSA, SPIE and APS, and has received several scientific awards, including the IEEE Kiyo Tomiyasu Award, the Vannevar Bush Faculty Fellowship from DoD, the ICO Prize in Optics, the NSF Alan T. Waterman award, the OSA Adolph Lomb Medal, and the URSI Issac Koga Gold Medal. Dr. Yu-Jung Lu is an Assistant Research Fellow of the Research Center for Applied Sciences at Academia Sinica and an Assistant Professor of the Department of Physics at National Taiwan University. Dr. Lu received her Ph.D. in Physics from National Tsing Hua University in 2013 under supervision of Prof. Shangjr Gwo. She worked at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) as a postdoc in Prof. Harry Atwater's group from 2015 to 2017. She is a material physicist, her research interests are related to active plasmonics and optoelectronics with a particular focus on semiconductor nanostructure devices to investigate light harvesting, generating, and manipulating at the nanoscale. Dr. Xiaoqin (Elaine) Li received her PhD in physics in 2003 from the University of Michigan, where she worked with Prof. Duncan Steel. In 2007, she joined the University of Texas-Austin after working with Prof. Steven Cundiff as a postdoctoral researcher at JILA, Colorado. Her research interests include fundamental optical properties of individual semiconductor and metallic nanoparticles or assembled clusters, metasurfaces. Her group is broadly interested in fundamental and collective excitations in solids such as phonons, excitons, magnons, and plasmons in a wide range of materials and how these excitations couple to each other to enable new properties. Recently, her group has worked on the assembly and characterization of artificial plasmonic nanoclusters, ultrafast spectroscopy studies of exciton physics in atomically thin semiconductors, and controlling magnons in magnetic multilayers. She is a fellow of the American Physical Society. Chih-Kang (Ken) Shih received his PhD from Stanford in 1988. In 1990 he joined the faculty at the University of Texas at Austin where he currently serves as the Arnold Romberg Endowed Chair in Physics. He leads the Nanoelectronics and Quantum Dynamics Research Group which focuses on the quantum optical control of semiconductor nanostructures, the growth and characterization of superconducting nanostructures and atomically smooth epitaxial metallic films on silicon as a platform for plasmonics.
