Overview

Classical plasmonics has been intensely studied in the last decade, providing a route toward intense local fields and light confined to volumes much smaller than the diffraction limit, with a wide range of applications for nanooptics in bio and chemical sensing, metamaterials, nanoelectronics, and light conversion for solar energy. In the same way that quantum optics, i.e. optics with individual photons, has revealed a wealth of optical phenomena not possible in classical optics, quantum plasmonics should greatly expand the possibilities for plasmonics if the quantum character of the plasmon can be captured, manipulated and exploited. Quantum plasmonics is still in its infancy. This workshop will overview some of its first successes, address challenges that must be overcome, and explore what might be possible once these challenges are met.
 

Featured Topics

The workshop will be divided into the following sessions highlighted by several invited talks and extended discussion:
  1. Quantum plasmonics – different viewpoints on what is it and what has been done
  2. Light matter coupling, antennas – coupling quantum emitters to plasmonic nanoantennas: what has and could be done
  3. Theoretical issues – on where and how the quantum comes in, when it is important, how it can be revealed
  4. Devices and novel measurements – what can be done with quantum plasmonics and new ways to probe it
  5. Prospects – what needs to be done to move forward, to build and test interesting systems, to exploit quantum effects
