Light-Matter Interaction: Physics and Engineering at the Nanoscale

John Weiner and Frederico Nunes


This book draws together the essential elements of classical electrodynamics, surface wave and plasmon physics, and waveguide and circuit engineering to provide insight into the essential nature of nanoscale light-matter interaction. The engineering approach also provides design methodology for practical nanoscale plasmonic devices. Furthermore, the book compares and contrasts classical and atomic radiation, highlighting the similarities (and differences) between the classical fields of Maxwell’s equations and the quantum wave functions of Schrödinger’s equation. The aim is to provide a semicl ... More

Keywords: electrodynamics, polarisation, surface waves, plasmonics, nanoscale, waveguides, equivalent circuits, dipole radiation, antennas
