Metamaterials and plasmonics are cross-disciplinary fields that are emerging into the mainstream of many scientific areas. Examples of scientific and technical fields which are concerned are electrical engineering, micro- and nanotechnology, microwave engineering, optics, optoelectronics, and semiconductor technologies. In plasmonics, the interplay between propagating electromagnetic waves and free-electron oscillations in materials are exploited to create new components and applications. On the other hand, metamaterials refer to artificial composites in which small artificial elements, through their collective interaction, creates a desired and unexpected macroscopic response function that is not present in the constituent materials. This book charts the state of the art of these fields. In May 2008, world-leading experts in metamaterials and plasmonics gathered into a NATO Advanced Research Workshop in Marrakech, Morocco. The present book contains extended versions of 22 of the presentations held in the workshop, covering the general aspects of the field, as well as design and modelling questions of plasmonics and metamaterials, fabrication issues, and applications like absorbers and antennas.

This thesis proposes a reliable and repeatable method for implementing Spoof Surface Plasmon (SSP) modes in the design of various circuit components. It also presents the first equivalent circuit model for plasmonic structures, which serves as an insightful guide to designing SSP-based circuits. Today, electronic circuits and systems are developing rapidly and becoming an indispensable part of our daily life; however the issue of compactness in integrated circuits remains a formidable challenge. Recently, the Spoof Surface Plasmon (SSP) modes have been proposed as a novel platform for highly compact electronic circuits. Despite extensive research efforts in this area, there is still an urgent need for a systematic design method for plasmonic circuits. In this thesis, different SSP-based transmission lines, antenna feeding networks and antennas are designed and experimentally evaluated. With their high field confinement, the SSPs do not suffer from the compactness limitations of traditional circuits and are capable of providing an alternative platform for the future generation of electronic circuits and electromagnetic systems.

Nanoplasmonics is a young topic of research, which is part of nanophotonics and nano-optics. Nanoplasmonics concerns to the investigation of electron oscillations in metallic nanostructures and nanoparticles. Surface plasmons have optical properties, which are very interesting. For instance, surface plasmons have the unique capacity to confine light at the nanoscale. Moreover, surface plasmons are very sensitive to the surrounding medium and the properties of the materials on which they propagate. In addition to the above, the surface plasmon resonances can be controlled by adjusting the size, shape, periodicity, and materials' nature. All these optical properties can enable a great number of applications, such as biosensors, optical modulators, photodetectors, and photovoltaic devices. This book is intended for a broad audience and provides an overview of some of the fundamental knowledges and applications of nanoplasmonics.

Optical metamaterials and metasurfaces, which are properly designed assembly of man-made building blocks with strong interactions with electromagnetic waves, have emerged as promising candidates to replace natural materials due to extraordinary capabilities in light manipulation. In particular, plasmonic metamaterials and metasurfaces have shown their potentials in surpassing diffraction limit, manipulating light beams, and enhancing energy conversion by substantially enhancing light-matter interactions through effects of surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs) or localized surface plasmons (LSPs). Although enormous breakthroughs in plasmonic metamaterials and metasurfaces have been made in the recent decades, the further development of this field towards practical applications has been limited by the lack of high throughput fabrication and the poor tunability in conventional designs. This dissertation presents the cost-effective nanofabrication, rationale design, numerical modelling, experimental demonstration, and application prototyping of new classes of plasmonic metamaterials and metasurfaces featured by moiré patterns. Firstly, we developed novel techniques based on conventional nanosphere lithography to achieve high-throughput nanofabrication of metamaterials and metasurfaces with three-dimensional (3D) and two-dimensional (2D) moiré configurations. Secondly, we demonstrated multiband moiré metasurfaces with flexible tunability based on plasmonic materials including Au and graphene, which have shown potentials as multifunctional biomedical platforms. Thirdly, we developed moiré chiral metamaterials with ultrathin thickness and precisely tunable chiroptical responses, which have been applied as ultrasensitive sensors to achieve label-free enantiodiscrimination of chiral molecules. Finally, we introduced dynamic tunability in moiré chiral metamaterials through stimuli-responsive manipulation of optical coupling in the metamaterials. The results presented in this dissertation could provide guidance to the development of tunable moiré metamaterials and metasurfaces from design and fabrication to characterization and device implementation, benefiting a range of applications from light manipulation to molecular sensing

Nanoplasmonics is one of the most important growth areas of this century. It is part of nano-optics and nanophotonics and deals with oscillations of electrons in metallic nanoparticles and nanostructures. Also, it is a multidisciplinary subject covering atomic, molecular, and solid-state physics, as well as much of chemistry. Nanoplasmonics makes it possible to combine the nanoscale properties of smart devices with their optical frequencies of operation. Nanoplasmonics presents, for the first time, both the physical principles and mathematical descriptions of main nanoplasmonic effects that now are scattered over thousands of research articles. Importantly, it contains many methods, accompanied by diagrams, for fast estimations and calculations of main properties of nanoparticles of very different shapes and their clusters. It also presents the most important applications of nanoplasmonics, including in medicine, nanolasers, electronics, perfect lenses, and invisibility cloaks.

Current developments in optical technologies are being directed toward nanoscale devices with subwavelength dimensions, in which photons are manipulated on the nanoscale. Although light is clearly the fastest means to send information to and from the nanoscale, there is a fundamental incompatibility between light at the microscale and devices and processes at the nanoscale. Nanostructured metals which support surface plasmon modes can concentrate electromagnetic (EM) fields to a small fraction of a wavelength while enhancing local field strengths by several orders of magnitude. For this reason, plasmonic nanostructures can serve as optical couplers across the nano–micro interface: metal–dielectric and metal–semiconductor nanostructures can act as optical nanoantennae and enhance light matter coupling in nanoscale devices. This book describes how one can fully integrate plasmonic nanostructures into dielectric, semiconductor, and molecular photonic devices, for guiding photons across the nano–micro interface and for detecting molecules with unsurpassed sensitivity. ·Nanophotonics and Nanoplasmonics ·Metamaterials and negative-index materials ·Plasmon-enhanced sensing and spectroscopy ·Imaging and sensing on the nanoscale ·Metal Optics

The focus of the present thesis is on two topics: the first is the interaction of surface plasmons and active media, and the second is acoustic metamaterials. These two seemingly different topics are connected by the notion that the negative material responses can lead to surface states. Surface plasmons are surface electromagnetic waves on metal surfaces, a consequence of negative permittivity. The study of active plasmonics is two fold: firstly, we study the surface plasmon amplification to compensate the intrinsic metal losses; secondly we study the enhanced spontaneous emission of emitters in excited state close to the metal surfaces. The concept of metamaterials---periodic composite structures with resonating element as a unit cell---is extended to acoustics. These acoustic metamaterials provide effective negative material responses and therefore the new surface states. We first propose a simple analytical method to obtain explicit expressions for surface plasmon polariton (SPP) dispersion, propagation length and critical gain required to overcome losses. A multiple quantum well structure is proposed to study SPP amplification accounting for SPP polarization, refractive index and temperature effects. In addition, we show that the emission of an optical emitter into various channels---surface plasmons, lossy surface waves and free radiation---can be precisely controlled by strategically positioning the emitters close to the metal surfaces. Next, we report a direct experimental evidence of stimulated emission of SPP at telecom wavelengths (1532 nm) in a SPP waveguide geometry using erbium doped phosphate glass. Together---the theoretical and experimental studies---these could provide a range of photonic devices; for example, nanolasers, surface plasmon amplifiers and efficient emitters. We investigate the acoustic analogue of electromagnetic metamaterials, and we report an ultrasonic metamaterial consisting of an array of subwavelength Helmholtz resonators that exhibits negative modulus. With the freedom of design that these acoustic metamaterials provide, we propose a new surface wave on an acoustic metamaterial with effective negative mass density. We further extend the concept of metamaterials to shear horizontal transverse waves. We provide a design of elastic metamaterial that exhibits effective negative mass density, and we finally show that pure shear surface elastic wave is possible with elastic metamaterials of negative shear modulus. We believe that this new class of acoustic and elastic metamaterials offers interesting applications like materials with dispersive properties, negative index and sub-diffraction limited imaging.
