Probe-Free Nanophotonic Systems: Macroscale Applications Based on Nanophotonics
To implement innovative nanometric optical processing systems as probe-free nanophotonic systems, it is necessary to exploit the unique attributes of nanometer-scale optical near-field interactions in a completely parallel fashion. This chapter is devoted to describing basic concepts necessary for two-dimensional parallel processing of light–matter interactions on the nanometer scale in order to realize probe-free nanophotonic systems. Additionally, the concepts and some demonstrations of the hierarchy inherent in nanophotonics, based on the hierarchy between optical near- and far-fields, are described as practical applications of optical near-field interactions.
