Light-Matter Interaction

Physics and Engineering at the Nanoscale

Second Edition

John Weiner and Frederico Nunes

  • Offers principal tools needed to understand and contribute to rapidly advancing developments in light-matter interaction
  • Written for advanced students and researchers in diverse disciplines, working with optical frequencies and length scales from a few hundred nanometres to a few hundredths of a nanometre
  • Insights from electrical engineering brought to bear on subwavelength optical design
  • Clear layout with many cross references to equations and topics
  • Illustrative appendices on electromagnetic units and mathematical techniques
  • Fundamental chapters coordinated with more advanced chapters

New to this Edition:

  • Substantially expanded, with almost 200 pages of new material
