Coherent control and manipulation of electromagnetic energy at optical frequencies on the subwavelength scale is a rapidly evolving field in the forefront areas of optics, nanoscience, and quantum information processing. An explosively expanding branch of this field, plasmonics, takes advantage of the ability of metal nanostructures to concentrate and locally enhance electromagnetic fields by orders of magnitude. This ability provides a remarkably effective means for nanoscale signal generation and processing. The potential applications of plasmonics will span many disciplines, including the enhancement of nonlinear optical effects high-speed nanoscale interconnects, metamaterials, high-performance chemical and biological sensing, subwavelength photonic circuits, near-field optical trapping, and high-density data storage. Pushing the envelope of these wide-range applications relies on fully understanding the underlying physics of plasmonic excitations in nanostructures by experimental, theoretical, and computational approaches. This workshop aims to bring together the experts in plasmonics and condensed matter physics to exchange their new results and challenging ideas, especially from the theoretical and computational perspectives.
