Synopsis

Quantum Plasmonics is an emerging field that explores the quantum properties of Surface Plasmon Polaritons (SPPs). Tools of Quantum Optics are used to investigate the SPPs in quantum regime. Due to their ability to highly confine the electromagnetic field, SPPs are expected to be used in quantum optics, computing and photon-photon interactions at nanoscales. As of today, very little is known about them. The research is underway to fully investigate their properties and put them into practical use.
