Nanoplasmonics deals with collective electron dynamics on the surface of metal nanostructures, which arises due to excitations called surface plasmons. The surface plasmons localize and concentrate optical energy in nanoscopic regions creating highly enhanced local optical fields. They undergo ultrafast dynamics with timescales as short as a few hundred attoseconds. From the latest developments and original work in nanoplasmonics, we will consider adiabatic nanofocusing, nanolenses, SPASER (quantum nanoscale optical generator and ultrafast amplifier) and SPIDER (surface-plasmon-induced drag-effect rectification). Time permitting, we may present also one of the following recent developments: attosecond nanoplasmonic field microscope or ultrafast coherent control on the nanoscale.
