Nanoplasmonics/nanophotonics defines the study of optical phenomena in the nanoscale vicinity of metal or dielectric surfaces. It is on the verge of developing into a promising technology platform for next-generation information technology, energy, high-density data storage, life/environment sciences and security. Research in this area has accelerated at an immense rate in the last couple of years, thanks to the advances in computation, nanofabrication and characterization to investigate light-fields of subwavelength dimensions. The nanoplasmonics/nanophotonics group in IHPC operates at the forefront of computational nanoplasmonics/nanophotonics research, and is collaborating with a few key groups both across Singapore and internationally.

In this talk, a few collaborative works will be presented, e.g., quantum plasmon resonances, an on-chip electrical plasmon sources based on tunnel junctions, and plasmonic sensing from numerical modelling to biological testing. Last but not least, the emerging application of nanoplasmonics/nanophotonics in quantum technologies will be highlighted.
