This book provides a systemic and self-contained guide to the theoretical description of the fundamental properties of plasmonic waves. The field of plasmonics is built on the interaction of electromagnetic radiation and conduction electrons at metallic interfaces or in metallic nanostructures, and so to describe basic plasmonic behavior, boundary-value problems may be formulated and solved using electromagnetic wave theory based on Maxwell’s equations and the electrostatic approximation. In preparation, the book begins with the basics of electromagnetic and electrostatic theories, along with a review of the local and spatial nonlocal plasma model of an electron gas. This is followed by clear and detailed boundary value analysis of both classical three-dimensional and novel two-dimensional plasmonic systems in a range of different geometries. With only general electromagnetic theory as a prerequisite, this resulting volume will be a useful entry point to plasmonic theory for students, as well as a convenient reference work for researchers who want to see how the underlying models can be analysed rigorously.

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 describes pioneering research on the extension of plasmonics schemes to the regime of high-intensity lasers. By presenting a rich and balanced mix of experimentation, theory and simulation, it provides a comprehensive overview of the emerging field of high field plasmonics, including open issues and perspectives for future research. Combining specially designed targets and innovative materials with ultrashort, high-contrast laser pulses, the author experimentally demonstrates the effects of plasmon excitation on electron and ion emission. Lastly, the work investigates possible further developments with the help of numerical simulations, revealing the potential of plasmonics effects in the relativistic regime for advances in laser-driven sources of radiation, and for the manipulation of extreme light at the sub-micron scale.

Plasmonics is a rapidly developing field that combines fundamental research and applications ranging from areas such as physics to engineering, chemistry, biology, medicine, food sciences, and the environmental sciences. Plasmonics appeared in the 1950s with the discovery of surface plasmon polaritons. Plasmonics then went through a novel propulsion in the mid-1970s, when surface-enhanced Raman scattering was discovered. Nevertheless, it is in this last decade that a very significant explosion of plasmonics and its applications has occurred. Thus, this book provides a snapshot of the current advances in these various areas of plasmonics and its applications, such as engineering, sensing, surface-enhanced fluorescence, catalysis, and photovoltaic devices.

Plasmonics is a rapidly growing field of research that has been intensely investigated in the past few decades, for its abundant underlying physics and fruitful practical applications in nanophotonics, integrated optics, optical communication and information processing. Benefiting from the ability to confine light below the diffraction limit and its ultrashort response time (~ 100 fs), a plasmonic-based optical device provides an ideal platform for the study of ultra-strong light-matter interaction and has demonstrated great promise in the strong-coupling quantum system, ultra-fast optical modulators and efficient chip-scale nonlinearities. However, the traditional plasmonic materials and nano-structures suffer from several drawbacks that hinder the further development of plasmonics, such as high optical loss and a limited nonlinear response. As a result, recent plasmonic-based devices have moved towards the quantum regime, searching for the better solution. And many recent reported results show noteworthy achievement. In this thesis, we have demonstrated that an efficient and tunable light source could be realized in delicately fabricated plasmonic nanostructures both in non-resonant and resonant conditions (with the metallic quantum well). It is done by engineering the electron wave-function coupling between plasmonic nanostructures (such as optical nano-antenna), and thus an efficient light generation is reached, which brings on-chip ultrafast and ultra-compact light sources one step closer to reality. In addition, we have shown that the nonlinear susceptibilities of ultra-thin plasmonic films could be engineered to be the state-of-the-art. It is done by introducing the quantum confinement into the plasmonic films (such as Au, Ag or TiN), so that a metallic quantum well is formed, which becomes new building blocks for the more complex plasmonic structures, such as metamaterials. This thesis starts from the theoretical investigation, followed by the nano-fabrication and experimental characterization, ends up with several interesting phenomena, their hidden physics and valuable applications. These quantum plasmonic materials and nano-structures realized in this thesis enable the further integration and functionalization of the plasmonic-based optical devices in the ultra-strong, efficient and fast light-matter interaction regime.

In this book, the authors concentrate on the surface Plasmon (SP) waveguide configurations ensuring nanoscale confinement and review the current status of this rapidly emerging field, considering different configurations being developed for nanoscale plasmonic guides and circuits. Both fundamental physics and application aspects of plasmonics are reviewed in detail by the world's leading experts. A unique feature of this book is its strong focus on a particular subfield of plasmonics dealing with subwavelength (nanoscale) waveguiding, an area which is especially important in view of the explosively growing interest in plasmonic interconnects and nanocircuits.
