Meeting Details

Plasmonics (GRS)
Gordon-Kenan Research Seminar

The Science and Engineering of Nanoscale Optics
Note: This conference is currently known as "Plasmonics & Nanophotonics (GRS)".


June 12-13, 2010


Colby College
Waterville, ME


Mark W. Knight & James B. Lassiter

Meeting Description

The Gordon-Kenan Research Seminar on Plasmonics is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

The focus of this meeting will be recent developments in fundamental and quantum plasmonics, active plasmonics and devices, and nonlinear and ultrafast plasmonics. In addition to student talks and posters, this meeting will feature an introduction to electrodynamics modeling and a round table discussion with leading researchers on career development.
