Symposium A6. Plasmonics and Metamaterials

Prof. Ta-Jen YenNational Tsing Hua University, Taiwan


Metamaterials and Plasmonics are artificially tailored subwavelength structures that boost the strong light-matter interaction ranging from macro- to microscopic scales. In the past decades, there appear numerous fundamental breakthroughs and novel electromagnetic phenomena, enabling a variety of creative and innovative applications to material science, physics, chemistry, biology, and nanotechnology. The topics of this session include, but not limited, negative refraction, hyperbolic metamaterials, near-zero-index metamaterials, metasurfaces, nonlinear metamaterials, quantum plasmonics, acoustic metamaterials, materials for photonics (Graphene, MoS2, WS2, etc), all optical plasmonics/photonic circuits.
