The student must obtain knowledge about optical nanostructures and components, optical microscopy techniques for nanostructures, propagation, scattering and absorption of light in nanostructures, the optical response of nanomaterials, and the related theory and theoretical methods.
Students completing the module will obtain:
Knowledge within the following areas
• Optical nanostructures and components
• Optical microscopy techniques for nano- and microstructures including the physical limitations to the resolution of the microscopies
• Theoretical methods for the optics of nanostructures including the modeling of electromagnetic fields in nanostructures, the scattering of light by nanostructures, and propagation and absorption of light in nanostructures.
• Optical response of nanomaterials including effects due to electronic quantization in nanoscale structures
The student must be able to apply the knowledge in above mentioned areas for solving problems including modeling of the optics of nanostructures on a computer.
Based on given information the student must be able to discuss and argument using concepts from the field of optical nanostructures and materials.
Lectures combined with theoretical exercises.
