Course Introduction:

The new theory, new technique and new application of the photonics development since the ends of twenty century will be introduced in “micro/nano photonics” course. By learning from this course, the students should know the up-to-date technology, application and fundamental theory of photonics. It is very important for their future study of science and technology.

Micor/Nano-Photonics will introduce two parts: the frontier of photonics and charactering techniques for nanophotonics. In the first part, the main contents include the spatially variant polarization, nanoplasmonics, subwavelength metal structures, and metasurface. In the second part, we will introduce a variety of techniques for photonics nanocharacterization, such as near-field optical microscope, far-field optical characterization techniques, high numerical aperture imaging, scanning probe microscope, and electron microscope.

Brief Introduction of Chief lecturer:

Dr. Guanghao Rui is an associate professor in School of Electronic Science and Engineering at Southeast University. His research interests are mainly in the general area of physical optics. Specifically, he is interested in achieving subwavelength spatial engineering of light properties (such as phase, intensity and polarization, etc.) utilizing modern fabrication tools and nanostructure, and subsequently manipulates the light-matter interactions on the nanometer scale. The tailored light-matter interactions can provide unique functionality for photonic devices, and render unique information about their structural and dynamical properties, enabling the development of optical tweezers, integrated photonic circuits, and optical imaging tools.
