Challenges in Plasmonic Photochemistry (#176)

This conference focuses on the chemical and physical consequences of light-field enhancement by nanostructures prepared by top-down and/or bottom-up methods using nanomaterials (e.g., metals, semiconductors, polymers and glasses). The electric field enhancement of incident light by surface plasmon-polaritons and localized plasmons on/in nanostructured metal films and nanoparticles will be the major thrust of this symposium. The design and development of light energy conversion devices based on photocatalytic, photovoltaic, and photo-enhanced biosensing properties will also be included. Other topics of interest include, but are not limited to: optical microscopy and microspectroscopy (in vitro/in vivo), ultrasensitive sensors based on surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS), enhanced fluorescence emission, and light manipulation by plasmonic metamaterials.
