"Optics on the Nanometer Scale"

Abstract.  Nano-optics is motivated by the rapid advance of nanoscience and nanotechnology. It aims at exploring optical phenomena and techniques  beyond the diffraction limit of light. Among the applications are high-resolution microscopy and spectroscopy, nanolithography, and nanomanipulation. In this seminar I will discuss the main ideas behind nano-optics and I will give an overview of topics pursued in the nano-optics group at the University of Rochester.
