The Zepler Institute presents:

New Material Platforms & Metasurface Designs for Plasmonics and Quantum Photonics

Professor Vladimir M. Shalaev, School of Electrical & Computer Engineering and Birck Nanotechnology Center, Purdue University

We outline the recent progress in the development of novel plasmonic materials and their applications in nano-optics, plasmonics, and quantum photonics. In particular, we will discuss the advances in the fields of refractory plasmonic devices, metasurface designs, and room-temperature quantum photonics with color centers in diamond.
