9780198567660: Light-Matter Interaction: Physics and Engineering at the Nanoscale

This book draws together the essential elements of classical electrodynamics, surface wave physics, plasmonic materials, and circuit theory of electrical engineering to provide insight into the essential physics of nanoscale light-matter interaction and to provide design methodology for practical nanoscale plasmonic devices. A chapter on classical and quantal radiation also highlights the similarities (and differences) between the classical fields of Maxwell's equations and the wave functions of Schrodinger's equation. The aim of this chapter is to provide a semiclassical picture of atomic absorption and emission of radiation, lending credence and physical plausibility to the "rules" of standard wave-mechanical calculations.

The structure of the book is designed around five principal chapters, but many of the chapters have extensive "complements" that either treat important digressions from the main body or penetrate deeper into some fundamental issue. Furthermore, at the end of the book are several appendices to provide readers with a convenient reference for frequently-occurring special functions and explanations of the analytical tools, such as vector calculus and phasors, needed to express important results in electromagnetics and waveguide theory.

John Weiner, Visiting Professor, University of Sao Paulo
Frederico Nunes, Professor, Federal University of Pernambuco

Review:

"The book by Weiner and Nunes hits the sweet spot in the application of electromagnetic theory to problems on interest in nanoscience. The standard elements of the theory are nicely covered, but unique elements of the book are the "Complements" wherein extensions of electromagnetic theory to nanoscience problems are presented, including the connection polarization and polarizability, of real antennas to oscillating dipoles, and of electromagnetic modes to Einstein coefficients. The book also includes extensive discussions of surface waves, especially plasmon waves, of waveguides, and of the semiclassical theory of radiation interacting with atoms. The authors are well known experts --George C. Schatz, Northwestern University
