About the Authors
  • This consistent and systematic review of recent advances in optical antenna theory and practice brings together leading experts in the fields of electrical engineering, nano-optics and nano-photonics, physical chemistry and nanofabrication. Fundamental concepts and functionalities relevant to optical antennas are explained, together with key principles for optical antenna modelling, design and characterisation. Recognising the tremendous potential of this technology, practical applications are also outlined. Presenting a clear translation of the concepts of radio antenna design, near-field optics and field-enhanced spectroscopy into optical antennas, this interdisciplinary book is an indispensable resource for researchers and graduate students in engineering, optics and photonics, physics and chemistry.

    • Provides a comprehensive picture of recent advances in this highly interdisciplinary field of research
    • Successfully overcomes dissimilar backgrounds and dissimilar technical language to present material in a clear, consistent style throughout
    • Written by leading experts, responsible for significant contributions to this groundbreaking field

    Reviews & endorsements

    "The book, enriched by an illuminating preface by the editors, 958 references grouped at the end of the volume, and a detailed subject index, is an excellent and indispensable tool for researchers as well as for graduate students who undertake their career in this fascinating and promising field."
    Giorgio Benedek, University of Milano, Bicocca, and Donostia International Physics Center

    "The articles cover fundamental concepts and functionalities, numerical modeling, design, and spectroscopy, and also include practical applications. Its interdisciplinary nature and well-written style will make this volume a valuable resource for both researchers and graduate students in all these fields."
    Peter Enders, Optics and Photonics

    "The quality of the text, mathematical treatments and figures is very high which makes the book easy to read. There are ample references which allow the reader to delve deeper into any subject raised within the book. [It] presents an overview of a rapidly developing field which is accessible to researchers and students from diverse backgrounds. … an important reference for any research group working in the development or application of optical antennas."
    Peter R. T. Munro, Contemporary Physics
