Description:

Title: Emerging Materials for Nanophotonics and Plasmonics

Speaker:Alexandra Boltasseva, Purdue University

Abstract: The fields of nanophotonics and plasmonics have taught us unprecedented ways to control the flow light at the nanometer scale, unfolding new optical phenomena and redefining centuries-old optical elements. As we continue to transfer the recent advances into applications, the development of new material platforms has become one of the centerpieces in the field of nanophotonics. In this presentation, I will discuss emerging material platforms including transparent conducting oxides, transition metal nitrides, oxides and carbides as well as two- and quasi-two-dimensional materials for future practical optical components across the fields of on-chip optics and optoelectronics, sensing, spectroscopy and energy conversion.
