Experiment vs. Modelling: What's the problem?
10 Aug 2009   Contributor(s):: William L. Barnes
Progress in plasmonics has been greatly assisted by developments in experimental techniques and in numerical modelling. This talk will look at some of the difficulties that emerge when comparisons are made between experiment and theory. Through the use of four examples I will illustrate what...
