Nanophotonics Underpins Some Groundbreaking Technologies. - Photonics Spectra Magazine
Nanophotonics is now a major research theme in optical physics and engineering. Driven by the dream of untapped device functionality, nanophotonics studies the exciting science of the interaction of light with nanostructures, at the size scale where optical, electronic, structural, thermal and mechanical properties are deeply interdependent.
Some experts believe that nanophotonics will continue to boom for the next decade on the ticket of a green enabling technology, and that with an outlook of 10 years plus, we will see “nanophotonics inside” solutions for telecoms, sensor and data-processing applications.
