Project Summary

The project combines 10 leading national research groups, with well established international recognition, both experimental and theoretical in a 50/50 balance. The experimental part comprises nanophotonics, plasmonics, nanofabrication, near field microscopy, single module detection, photonic crystals and nonlinear optics, and thus covers the most important current approaches to nanoscale light technology. These methods will be exploited to investigate and control the generation, confinement and flow of light energy on the nanoscale. The theoretical part is essential to provide concepts and guidelines to design suitable schemes for the creation of highly localized spatio-temporal fields, to calculate plasmon and shape resonances, local density of states, nanophotonic forces and the response of embedded quantum systems. Obviously theory and experiment are complementary and closely interrelated.
