Nanophotonics is a technology where the flow of optical frequency
electromagnetic radiation is engineered in dimensions, or with
function enabling feature sizes, comparable to or smaller than the
vacuum wavelength. The research on nanophotonic devices will
thus be essential to achieve ultra-high photonic integration density.
In the present talk, I will review our recent research efforts on
nanophotonics. In particular, the topics of photonic crystals, plasmonics,
silicon photonics, and optical metamaterials will be covered. Their
applications for waveguides, filters, microcavities, nonlinear devices,
and even invisibility cloaks will be briefly discussed.
