Department of Physical Electronics
Synopsis:

The lecture covers physical principles and selected advanced topics in photonics and plasmonics for quantum technologies, namely propagating and localized surface plasmons, photonic crystals, metamaterials, and their combinations. It also discusses currentphysical problems and topics in these areas.

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Introduction -macrostructures, microstructures, nanostructures, methods of description, electronic vs. photonic structures. 2. Quantum confined structures: 1D structures -quantum wells, 2D structures -quantum wires, and 3D structures -quantum dots, excitons. 3. Electrodynamics of metals, specifics, dispersion models (Drude, Drude-Lorentz), surface-plasmons, excitation methods, localized surface plasmons, description possibilities. 4. Structures with plasma resonance -mathematical description, metallic nanoparticles and nanostructures. 5. Photonic structures, overview, classification, periodic systems, photonic crystal-1D, 2D, 3D, optical properties, waveguiding photonic structures, microcavities and microresonators.6. Artificially made materials and structures -artificial dielectrics, metamaterials, negative refractive index.7. Methods for solving interaction of elektromagneticfield with s nanophotonic / nanoplasmonicstructurs. 8. Application possibilities of nanophotonic and nanoplasmonic structures9. Current topics -magnetooptics, gain -loss structures, topological photonics, transformation photonics. 10. Student reports on selected topics from the scientific field.
