Nanophotonics is a comprehensive introduction to the emerging area concerned with controlling and shaping optical fields at a subwavelength scale. Photonic crystals and microcavities are extensively described, including non-linear optical effects. Local-probe techniques are presented and are used to characterize plasmonic devices. The emerging fields of semiconductor nanocrystals and nanobiophotonics are also presented.
Written by distinguished scientists, it provides comprehensive coverage of the field, from the basics to the most advanced technologies, and as such will be of great interest to those involved in any aspect of nanophotonics.


1. Photonic Crystals: From Microphotonics to Nanophotonics.
2. Bidimensional Photonic Crystals for Photonic Integrated Circuits.
3. Photonic Crystal Fibers.
4. Quantum Dots in Optical Microcavities.
5. Non Linear Optics in Nano- and Microstructures.
6. Third-order Optical Nonlinearities in Photonic Crystals.
7. Controling the Optical Near-field: Implications for Nanotechnology.
8. Sub-wavelength Optics: Toward Plasmonics.
9. The Confined Universe of Electrons in Semiconductor Nanocrystals.
10. Nano-biophotonics.
