Research in this area has accelerated at an immense rate in the last couple of years, thanks to advances in computation, nanofabrication, and the development of new experimental techniques to image light fields of dimensions smaller than the wavelength. Nanoplasmonics is at the verge of developing into a very promising technology platform for next-generation applications in information technologies, energy, high-density data storage, life sciences and security. The nanoplasmonics group, led by Professor Stefan Maier, operate at the forefront of plasmonics research, and are collaborating with a wide range of key groups both across Imperial College London, within the UK and internationally.
