This book presents a broad review of optical antenna theory and practice. It brings together topics in electrical engineering, nano-optics and -photonics (including quantum aspects and nonlinearity), solid-state physics, physical chemistry and nanofabrication. The articles cover fundamental concepts and functionalities, numerical modeling, design, and spectroscopy, and also include practical applications. Its interdisciplinary nature and well-written style will make this volume a valuable resource for both researchers and graduate students in all these fields.
