Manipulating light with resonances in photonic crystals and plasmonic devices

Professor Shanhui Fan ,
Electrical Engineering, Stanford University

We will discuss some of the recent developments in photonic crystals and plasmonics. In particular, we review some of our recent works on stopping light, on non-reciprocal photonic crystal systems, and on sub-wavelength propagating modes in metal-dielectric-metal systems at optical frequencies. We will also briefly discuss some of newer developments on algorithms developments for nanophotonics.
