The manipulation of light at the nanometer scale is highly pursued for both fundamental sciences and wide applications. The diffraction limit of light sets the limit for the smallest size of photonic devices to the scale of light wavelength. Fortunately, the peculiar properties of surface plasmons in metal nanostructures make it possible to squeeze light into nanoscale volumes and enable the manipulation of light and light–matter interactions beyond the diffraction limit. Studies on surface plasmons have led to the creation of a booming research field called plasmonics. Because of its various scientific and practical applications, plasmonics attracts researchers from different fields, making it a truly interdisciplinary subject. Nanophotonics: Manipulating Light with Plasmons starts with the general physics of surface plasmons and a brief introduction to the most prominent research topics, followed by a discussion of computational techniques for light scattering by small particles. Then, a few special topics are highlighted, including surfaceenhanced Raman scattering, optical nanoantennas, optical forces, plasmonic waveguides and circuits, and gain-assisted plasmon resonances and propagation. The book discusses the fundamental and representative properties of both localized surface plasmons and propagating surface plasmons. It explains various phenomena and mechanisms using elegant model systems with well-defined structures, is illustrated throughout with excellent figures, and contains an extensive list of references at the end of each chapter. It will help graduate-level students and researchers in nanophotonics, physics, chemistry, materials science, nanoscience and nanotechnology, and electrical and electronic engineering get a quick introduction to this field.

Nanophotonics is the study of light at a nanometer to micrometer scale. In this thesis, I present my work on two sub-fields of nanophotonics: near-field light propagation and optical force. In the near-field limit, where the light's propagation distance is shorter than the wavelength of light, light propagation is not restricted by the macroscopic diffraction limit. As a result, field patterns with sub-wavelength feature size are allowed. I will show that it is possible to intuitively describe this system in wavevector space. I will also show that it is possible to enhance the field in this system by the use of an interface between a positive- and a negative-permittivity material. This field enhancement can be used to compensate the decay that is characteristic of near-field propagation in free-space. It also allows the system to be optimized for image-transfer purposes, where the goal is to have the image resembles the original input field. In optical force studies, the presence of light in optical systems can exert an electromagnetic force on an object. For example, two parallel waveguides with light propagating along them can experience a force that pushes or pulls the two waveguides. The force in this system allows us to design a non-volatile optical memory, which, unlike conventional optical memory, can maintain a state without the need of continuous input power. I will also study the force between a waveguide and a coupled resonator. I will show that there is a fundamental limit on the system, and show a more complicated setup where the limit is overcome. Finally, I study the existence of an optical equilibrium in the optical force in the waveguide-resonator system. I will show that optical equilibrium cannot be obtained in a single-resonance system and requires the interaction between two resonances.

Photonics concerns the generation, transport, processing and detection of light. It underlies a large amount of industrial activity, mainly devoted to information technology, telecommunications, environmental monitoring, biomedical science and instrumentation. The field has received a powerful impetus recently with the introduction of nanoscale concepts. Moreover, organic materials now appear as key components in photonic devices such as light-emitting diodes, integrated lasers, or photovoltaic cells. Organic molecular systems offer unique opportunities in nanophotonics since both top-down and bottom-up strategies can be pursued towards the nanoscale. This book gathers the proceedings of the NATO advanced research workshop on "Organic Nanophotonics", held in Aix-en-Provence, France, August 25-29, 2002. It constitutes a snapshot of the state of the art in the novel, emerging research area of nanophotonics based on organic molecules and materials.

Polarization is one of the most fundamental degree of freedoms of photons. Techniques to control polarization are therefore of crucial importance from a fundamental perspective and find applications in many areas such as optical communications, sensing, and imaging. An important task in the control of polarization is to achieve polarization conversion, where one seeks to generate a target output polarization for a given input polarization. In the first part of this dissertation, we show that a photonic crystal slab with a mirror underneath can provide complete conversion between linear polarizations in a reflection process. Moreover, such an effect is topological since the complex reflection coefficients have a nonzero winding number in the wavevector space. We next show that such a structure can also achieve arbitrary polarization conversion. For a given incident light with any fixed polarization, one can generate arbitrary polarization in the reflected light, by varying the direction of the incident light. Photons are also important heat carriers. The ability to control thermal radiation and radiative heat transfer is of fundamental importance for a wide range of energy applications. In the second part of this dissertation, we use nanophotonic structures and principles to control thermal radiation and heat flow, which can provide thermal capabilities that are unavailable from conventional structures. In the first exmaple, we demonstrate narrowband thermal radiation with unity emissivity peak in the near-infrared range by critically coupling a flat tungsten surface with guided resonances of a dielectric photonic crystal slab. The frequency and linewidth of the emissivity peak are highly tunable. In the second example, we propose a scheme for achieving thermal switch in near-field radiative heat transfer. We present a practical implementation consisting of three nanospheres that are aligned in a straight line. Exploiting the thermal dependent resonances of the nanospheres, we show that the heat transfer between the two side spheres can be turned `on' and `off' by varing the temperature of the center sphere.
