This book provides a unified description and an integrated view of nanophotonics and plasmonics to show their similarities and advantages for manipulating light at the nanometer scale. It includes discussion on the common underlying physics for different materials—optically transparent for nanophotonics and opaque materials for plasmonics.

The authors analyze nanophotonics and plasmonics based on the use of the general theory of electromagnetic eigenmodes and provide an in-depth understanding of localized and propagating eigenmodes in both technologies. This book also shows the main device applications for both nanophotonics and plasmonics, and is suitable for graduate students as well as researchers in the field.
