Title: New Material Platforms & Metasurface Designs for Plasmonics and Quantum Photonics
The field of metamaterials is expected to reshape the existing optical technologies and create new ones. In this presentation, emerging plasmonic and metamaterial concepts
from design to material platforms will be discussed with the focus on practical photonic technologies for communication, bio-medical applications, energy and quantum photonics.
