Open Lecture: Sergey I. Bozhevolnyi

Extremely small, incredibly fast and amazingly useful: Plasmon-enriched nanophotonics

Light consists of photons only when it propagates in vacuum. As soon as light penetrates in and interacts with materials, it is transformed into all sorts of quasi-particles. Thus, surface plasmons appear due to light interacting with metallic materials.
In this talk, plasmons will be introduced from a pedestrian viewpoint, arguing for their superior qualities and demonstrating selected applications: nano-circuitry and metasurfaces.

About Sergey I. Bozhevolnyi
Sergey I. Bozhevolnyi is one of the most cited researchers at SDU. He's the leader of SDU Center for Nano Optics and a chair in DIAS, Danish Institute of Advanced Study
Professor Sergey I. Bozhevolnyi is widely recognised for having pioneered theoretical and experimental studies in nano-optics and for the development of various plasmonic waveguides, including those based on long-range, channel and dielectric-loaded surface plasmons. The latest achievements include pioneering work on gap plasmon based waveguides and resonators as well as their use for ultra-compact photonic components and gradient metasurfaces enabling complete control over radiation.

This open lecture takes place at the DIAS seminar room, Fioniavej 34, SDU CAMPUS and everybody is welcome. The lecture will be uploaded to our YouTube channel the following week
