Anatoly Zayats: Nanostructured metals and plasmonic effects

Metals depend on nanostructures to determine their optical properties, and their potential for innovative applications.
19 September 2012, SPIE Newsroom. DOI: 10.1117/2.3201209.06

Anatoly Zayats is the Professor of Experimental Physics and the head of the Experimental Biophysics and Nanotechnology at the Department of Physics, King's College London (UK). He also leads the UK research program on active plasmonics. His current research interests are in the areas of nano-optics, scanning probe microscopy, nanophotonics and plasmonics, nonlinear optics and spectroscopy, surface plasmons and polaritons, and optical properties of surfaces, thin films, semiconductors and low-dimensional structures.

Zayats received MSc in Physics and PhD in Physics from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. He pioneered the field of nonlinear nano-optics, nonlinear and active plasmonics, and nonlinear plasmonic metamaterials.

He is a Fellow of the Institute of Physics, OSA, and SPIE. For SPIE he serves on the program committee for the Nanophotonics conference at SPIE Photonics Europe. He has contributed more than 40 papers to SPIE Proceedings over the last two decades, and has presented numerous invited and keynote talks at SPIE events.
