Not long ago, I was considering one of the most important decisions in a scientist's life — a PhD research field. After initial inquiry, I decided to take Prof. Vladimir Shalaev's online course in nanophotonics. The lectures provided me the inspiration to choose plasmonics as my main research field, with the ultimate target of using SPP as information carriers in deep nanoscale. Now, 18 months later, I have a well established, high quality research plan and great passion to do it all with plasmonics — sensing, waveguiding, data processing, energy and even medical applications … › more
