Plasmonics is an important branch of optics concerned with the
interaction of metals with light. Under appropriate illumination,
metal nanoparticles can exhibit enhanced light absorption, becoming
nanosources of heat that can be precisely controlled. This book
provides an overview of the exciting new field of thermoplasmonics
and a detailed discussion of its theoretical underpinning in
nanophotonics. This topic has developed rapidly in the last decade,
and is now a highly-active area of research due to countless
applications in nanoengineering and nanomedicine. These important
applications include photothermal cancer therapy, drug and gene
delivery, nanochemistry and photothermal imaging. This timely and
self-contained text is suited to all researchers and graduate
students working in plasmonics, nano-optics and thermal-induced
processes at the nanoscale.
