Lectures: every Monday 12.15 - 13.45 (Auditorium ACP, Beutenberg), starting on Oct 16th.
The course provides an introduction to the fundamentals of the broad research field of nanooptics. The students will learn about different concepts which are applied to control light at subwavelength spatial dimensions. Furthermore they will learn how light and nanostructures can be used to investigate physical phenomena with a spatial resolution not accessible with standard far field approaches to microscopy. After successful completion of the course the students should be capable of understanding present problems of the research field and should be able to solve basic problems using advanced literature.
To reach this objective the course will cover a basic introduction to the following topics:
Propagating modes and localized modes
Basics of nanotechnologies for the realization of optical nano-structures
Techniques for the experimental characterization of optical nano-structures
