DIELECTRIC NANO-PHOTONICS-I: WHY PLASMONICS MEANS ALWAYS LOSS?
Nano-optics is usually associated with plasmonic structures made of noble metals to enhance the electromagnetic field on the nanoscale. However, the high level of Joule losses associated with the noble metals has always been a challenge limiting the efficiency of optical devices. In this talk, I will discuss why nanoplasmonics always means loss in metal nanostructures.
