Description:

The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP, Trieste, Italy) is organizing a Workshop on Nanophotonics to be held at the ICTP, from 3-7 December 2012. This event is co-sponsored by the Argonne National Laboratory and the US NSF (National Science Foundation).

DESCRIPTION:
This Workshop will describe the fundamentals, recent advances and applications of nano photonics and will be organized to encourage the interaction of the participants from all countries and at all levels. It will provide a unique opportunity to advance knowledge and understanding in the area of interaction of light with sub-wavelength size objects.

There will be Tutorial lectures given by experts in the field followed by Invited Talks in specific topics. In order to foster content-specific interactions, the Workshop will include a Poster Session for the presentation of research studies by junior and other participants. In addition, we will introduce the participants to a variety of user facilities that provide access to nanofabrication and characterization equipment.

Topics to be covered:

Introduction to sub-wavelength photonics
Plasmonics; Metamaterials; Transformation optics;
Forces at the nanoscale;

Sub-wavelength structures nanofabrication techniques
Lithographic and nano-patterning techniques; Chemical fabrication; Bio-inspired fabrication; Materials properties;

Applications and devices Optical antennas; Nanowire devices; Spasers and nanolasers;
Plasmonic detectors; Diamond nanophotonics; Graphene photonic devices;
Phase discontinuities based devices; Photovoltaics; Spectroscopy and sensing.
