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.
