Selected Topics in Solid-State Electronics - Subwavelength Nanophotonics and Plasmonics
An introductory course for the 1st and 2nd year graduate students to understand the theory and application of the photonic devices which have feature size smaller than the wavelength of light, termed subwavelength photonics (SWP) or subwavelength optical elements (SOE). The devices include those with metallic structures, namely, subwavelength plasmonics. The course has three main sections: (i) rigorous Maxwell theory and mean-field theory for SWPs, (ii) non-resonant SWPs and resonant SWPs (photonic crystals), and (iii) applications of SWP.
Sample reading list:

The nonresonant SWPs include artificial birefriengent crystal and waveplates, polarizers, antireflection (antisticking and antifoggy) structures, and negative index materials. The resonant SWPs include photonic crystals, filters, and mirrors. The applications include control laser properties by SWPs, light trapping, surface enhanced Raman scattering, and light extraction for LEDs.
