Paper Abstract

Controlling photonic processes on length scales below the diffraction limit requires structural elements with dimensions much smaller than the wavelength. Recently, novel plasmonic metamaterial has been developed based on arrays of aligned plasmonic nanorods which can be designed to exhibit hyperbolic dispersion or epsilon-near-zero behaviour. This metamaterial provides a flexible platform with tuneable optical properties across the visible and telecom spectral range. Such metamaterials can be used instead of conventional plasmonic metals for designing plasmonic waveguides, plasmonic crystals, label-free bio- and chemo-sensors, for development nonlinear plasmonic structures with the enhanced nonlinearities, and controlling emitters. In this talk, we will overview fundamentals and applications of plasmonic nanorod metamaterial for designing new types of nanostructured plasmonic platforms, bio- and chemical sensing components, and nonlinear optical devices.
