Nanophotonics aims at controlling light at nanometer scales. The design of nanostructures that can resonantly interact with light is of crucial
importance to enhance light matter interactions and to control field distributi-ons at subwavelength scales. These novel nanostructures offer
technical and technological solutions with high innovation potential. The TOM 5 will address both fundamental and application aspects of
resonant photonics. Topics will cover quantum nano-optics, bio- and chemo- sensing, non-linear optics, metamaterials, optical
trapping, new plasmonic materials, theory and modal analysis, among others.
