Plasmonic Nanophotonics: Coupling Light to Nanostructure via Plasmons

The photon is the ultimate unit of information because it packages data in a signal of zero mass and has unmatched speed. The power of light is driving the photonicrevolution, and information technologies, which were formerly entirely electronic, are increasingly enlisting light to communicate and provide intelligent control. Plasmonicnanostructures can act as nanoantennaeand thus serve as optical couplers across the nano–micro interface. Plasmonicnanophotonicspromises to create entirely new prospects for guiding light on the nanoscale, some of which may have revolutionary impact on present-day optical technologies.
