Surface plasmons - optics on the nanoscale

Prof. Timur Shegai

Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden

Bound electromagnetic waves existing in a form of collective oscillations of surface charges in thin metallic films and nanoparticles are now widely known as surface plasmons. The most prominent property of surface plasmons is that they are able to concentrate electromagnetic energy to deep subwavelength volumes, thereby greatly increasing the local density of photonic states. This in turn gives rise to a number of possible amplification mechanisms for various spectroscopic and light-matter interaction phenomena including Raman scattering, fluorescence, local refractive index sensitivity and light harvesting. In this lecture we will discuss recent progress along these lines.

Brief Bio:

Prof. Timur Shegai received his MSc degree in 2003 from Novosibirsk State University (Novosibirsk, Russia) and PhD degree in physical chemistry in 2008 from the Weizmann Institute of Science (Rehovot, Israel). He then moved to Chalmers University of Technology (Göteborg, Sweden) where he at first worked as a postdoctoral fellow (2009-2012) and afterwards as an assistant professor (2013-present). In his research career, he has been working on various research topics including single-molecule spectroscopy, optical microscopy and imaging, plasmonics and nuclear magnetic resonance. He is a lecturer in materials, spectroscopy and microscopy oriented courses at Chalmers University.
