Nano-optics is the study of optical phenomena and techniques on the
nanometer scale, that is, near or beyond the diffraction limit of
light. It is an emerging field of study, motivated by the rapid
advance of nanoscience and nanotechnology which require adequate
tools and strategies for fabrication, manipulation and
characterization at this scale. In this 2006 text the authors
provide a comprehensive overview of the theoretical and
experimental concepts necessary to understand and work in
nano-optics. With a very broad perspective, they cover optical
phenomena relevant to the nanoscale across diverse areas ranging
from quantum optics to biophysics, introducing and extensively
describing all of the significant methods. Written for graduate
students who want to enter the field, the text includes problem
sets to reinforce and extend the discussion. It is also a valuable
reference for researchers and course teachers.
