Applications in Nano-Photonics

Visible light is electromagnetic waves with submicron wavelengths — between ~400 nm (blue light) and ~700–750 nm (red light) in free space. Therefore propagation of light through materials is affected greatly by their submicron features and structures. Moreover, the ability to create and control such small features has led to amazing new physical effects, technologies and devices, as discussed later in this chapter.
