Nanophotonic Fabrication: Self-Assembly and Deposition Techniques

Takashi Yatsui

Springer, 2012; $129.00 (hardcover).


Nanophotonics is a novel optical technology that utilizes the local interaction between nanometric particles via optical near-fields. In the nanoscale, materials, phonons, electrons and photons can be coupled with each other to form dressed photons and phonons that can be applied to nanoscale imaging, ultra-high density recording and plasmonics. This book focuses on nanophotonic fabrication. With the qualitative innovation of nanophotonics, optical fabrication can be achieved on the subnanometer scale by using the optical near-field. The book is an introduction for readers, who will be interested in various functions that differ depending on the device.
