Plasmonics & Nanophotonics (GRS)
Gordon Research Seminar

Towards Plasmonic Applications and Novel Nanooptical Concepts


July 9-10, 2016


Grand Summit Hotel at Sunday River
Newry, ME


Nikolai Strohfeldt & Runmin Zhang

Meeting Description

The Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on Plasmonics and Nanophotonics is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

This GRS meeting (2016, Sunday River Resort, Newry, Maine) will focus on new developments and applications in the field of plasmonics and nanooptics. In particular, this GRS aims to seek young scientists to present their latest results on active and passive metamaterials, novel plasmonic materials and sensing concepts, and non-linear and ultrafast nanooptics.

Related Meeting

This GRS was held in conjunction with the "Plasmonics & Nanophotonics" Gordon Research Conference (GRC). Refer to the associated GRC program page for more information.
