Plasmonic Nanostructures: Artificial Molecules
Prof. Peter Nordlander
Rice University, USA

The plasmon hybridization concept shows that plasmons in complex nanostructures interact and hybridize in an analogous manner as atomic orbitals in molecules [1]. This insight provides a foundation for design of new plasmonic structures for enhanced spectroscopies and chemical sensing [2], subwavelength waveguiding [3], photodetectors [4], photocatalysts [5], and other light harvesting applications [6]. The talk is comprised of basic overview material for a general audience interspersed with a few more specialized "hot topics" such as quantum plasmonics, nonlinear optics, water purification and photocatalysis.
