What You Will Learn/Seminar Objectives
- How to develop new optical materials and tools that enable controlled light-matter interactions across wavelength and sub-wavelength scales
- An understanding of how the optical properties of individual and coupled metallic nanoparticles change when they transition from a classical to a quantum-influenced regime.
- Insights into the thermodynamics of ion intercalation in individual, catalytically-active metallic nanoparticles.
- Insights into how coupling between nanoparticles can enable optical-frequency magnetism and colloidal synthesis of an isotropic metafluid.
- Basic principles of electron spectroscopy and tomography for visualizing light-matter interactions at the nanoscale, and in 3D.
Who Should Attend
- Graduate students and postdocs working in nanophotonics and plasmonics, or students interested in noble metal nanoparticle synthesis and characterization.
- Industrial researchers in optics, energy, or characterization fields.
- Companies who develop energy-harvesting devices or are interested in novel optical materials.
The webinar is prepared for an intermediate level. A basic understanding of electromagnetism and quantum physics will be helpful.
