VENUE E3-06-05, Engineering Block E3, NUS 
FEES No Charge 

In this seminar speaker will review ongoing experimental and theoretical efforts to explore the plasmonic response in metallic nanoparticles, where nanometric dimensions are expected to promote a nonlocal plasmonic response beyond that of the usual classical electrodynamics. Speaker will briefly review efforts to make semi-classical hydrodynamic extensions, as well as our most recent developments beyond these simplified models. Speaker will also address their most recent single-particle EELS observations of high-order modes in silver nanoparticles. Speaker will then turn applications of nanoplasmonic systems, where localized plasmon resonances are used to facilitate broad range of plasmonic colours with applications in decoration of plastic surfaces and with novel opportunities to laser-post processing and printing of colours with subwavelength resolution. 

N. Asger Mortensen is a full professor at the Technical University of Denmark (faculty since 2004), from where he also received the MSc, PhD, and Dr. Techn. degrees in 1998, 2001, and 2006, respectively. His research focuses on new wave phenomena and light-matter interactions in artificially structured materials. The list of past and present research topics include quantum electron transport in mesoscopic systems, photonic bandgap materials, nanofluidics & optofluidics, nanophotonics & slow-light photonic crystals, metamaterials, and nanoplasmonics. Among several honors, he is a fellow of SPIE. For more details, please visit
