The field of complex photonic media is truly interdisciplinary, inevitably overarching multiple topics of physics, chemistry, nanotechnology, materials science, and engineering. In Tutorials in Complex Photonic Media, the editors bring together 19 essential chapters written by leading scientists in their respective fields. These tutorials cover the basic physical properties of complex photonic media and the underlying concepts that constitute breakthroughs in modern optics. Tutorials in Complex Photonic Media helps students, engineers, and scientists entering the field to become familiar with the interrelated aspects of the subject. It also serves well as a supplemental text in introductory and advanced courses on optical materials, nanotechnology, physical optics, or photonic metamaterials. The covered topics include: nanoplasmonics and nanophotonics, chiral media, negative index of refraction, random lasers, propagation of electromagnetic waves in scattering media, fundamental physics of photonic materials, organic photonic materials, photonic crystals, metamaterials, magneto-optics, optical vortexes, holography, and slow light.

Mikhail A. Noginov graduated from Moscow Institute for Physics and Technology (Moscow, Russia) in 1985 with a Master of Science degree in Electronics Engineering. In 1990 he received a Ph.D. degree in Physical-Mathematical Sciences from General Physics Institute of the USSR Academy of Sciences (Moscow, Russia). Dr. Noginov s affiliations include: General Physics Institute of the USSR Academy of Sciences (Moscow, Russia, 1985 1991); Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Cambridge, MA, 1991 1993); Alabama A&M University (Huntsville, AL, 1993 1997); and Norfolk State University (NSU) (Norfolk, VA, 1997 present).
Dr. Noginov has published one book, four book chapters, over 100 papers in peer-reviewed journals, and over 100 publications in proceedings of professional societies and conference technical digests (more than 20 of them being invited papers). He is a member of Sigma Xi, Optical Society of America, SPIE, and the American Physical Society and has served as a chair and a committee member on several conferences of SPIE and OSA. Since 2003, Dr. Noginov has been a faculty advisor of the OSA student chapter at NSU. His research interests include metamaterials, nanoplasmonics, random lasers, solid state laser materials, and nonlinear optics.
Graeme Dewar earned his Ph.D. in Physics from Simon Fraser University in 1980. He joined the University of North Dakota in 1989 where he is currently Professor and Chair of the Department of Physics and Astrophysics. Most of his research projects have involved the interaction of electromagnetic radiation with complex media. These have included experimental investigations of the radio frequency properties of ferromagnetic metals, with an emphasis on magnetoelastic effects, and photonic crystals. His current interests are primarily in metamaterials having a tailored permittivity and permeability.
Martin W. McCall graduated in Physics from Imperial College London in 1983. His doctoral thesis concerned development of vector coupled-wave theory describing anisotropic diffraction in photorefractives for use in real-time image processing. After a spell at the University of Bath, UK, where he worked on nonlinear dynamics in semiconductor lasers, McCall returned to Imperial College in 1988 to work on a range of optoelectronic themes, including nonlinear coupling and mixing in semiconductor amplifiers and laser arrays, optical interconnects, and Bragg grating physics. Broadly within the remit of describing the electromagnetics of complex media, he has specifically worked on chiral photonic films and negative index metamaterials. Recently he has specialized in the use of covariant methods in electromagnetism. He is currently Professor of Theoretical Optics at Imperial College London.
Nikolay I. Zheludev received his M.Sc., Ph.D., and D.Sc. from Moscow State University and joined the faculty of Southampton University in 1991. He is Deputy Director of the Optoelectronics Research Centre, University of Southampton and directs the EPSRC Centre on Nanostructured Photonic Metamaterials. His awards include a Senior Research Fellowship with the Leverhulme Trust (2001), a Senior Research Professorship of the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (2002), and the Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award (2009). Prof. Zheludev is a Fellow of the Institute of Physics (London) and of the Optical Society of America. He is a member of the European Physical Society QEOD steering group and the Institute of Physics QEP steering group, and vice chaired the metamaterials group of the Physics and Engineering Research Council of the Optical Society of America. He is also Editor in Chief of the Journal of Optics (IOP Publishing).
