Plasmonics (GRS)
Gordon-Kenan Research Seminar
The Science and Engineering of Nanoscale Optics
June 12-13, 2010
Colby College
Waterville, ME

Related Meeting Information
The Plasmonics Gordon-Kenan Research Seminar was held in conjunction with the Plasmonics Gordon Research Conference. Please refer to the Plasmonics GRC web page for more information.

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.
