Nanoscale Photonics: Optics beyond the diffraction limit
Advancement in micro-fabrication has led to new opportunities to explore optics beyond the diffraction limit. This course reviews optical wave propagation in one, two and three dimensional photonic crystals using basic wave optical concepts and will describe enhanced optical emission and transmission, confocal microscopy, 4pi microscopy, optical scanning probe techniques and optical tweezers.
Wolfgang S. Bacsa Professor at the Solid State Physics Laboratory at the Université Paul Sabatier, France and visiting Research Professor at Boston University, USA. Dr. Wolfgang Bacsa is an expert in the emerging field of Nano-Optics and Carbon Nanotubes. He has a Ph.D. from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zürich in Physics and has extensive experience in condensed matter physics, optics, microscopy, synthesis of ultra-thin films and nanostructured carbon. Dr. Bacsa worked at ETH Zürich, Penn State University and EPFL Lausanne. He is currently a professor at the Solid State Physics Laboratory at the University of Toulouse in southern France and a visiting Research Professor at Boston University. His research interests are in interference scanning optical probe microscopy and carbon nanotubes. He has more than 15 years of research experience and published more than 60 scientific papers. He received an Innovation prize in 1998 and has been an invited visiting scientist at SRI Menlo Park CA and University of Osaka, Japan.
