In structures whose optical response is determined by nanoscale features, the character of optical propagation, interaction and measurement commonly involves an interplay of structural and electronic, quantum mechanical and quantum optical features, all concisely conveyed by the term 'nanophotonics'. This distinctive field continues to exhibit a phenomenal rate of growth at both the research and applications level.

It is the purpose in this conference, the seventh of an established series and a major component of Photonics Europe, to address the latest developments in the optics, materials and physics-related aspects of this exciting area, emphasizing principles, systems and mechanisms, and identifying current directions in research and development. Reporting the cutting-edge technical advances and applications, the conference will cover a broad range of topics in nanophotonics, including its detailed theoretical foundations, mechanisms, optical techniques, characterization principles, novel fabrication and synthetic methods, calculational and modeling advances, devices, and a full range of applications in fields as diverse as energy, lighting and displays, health and medicine.
