Special Interest Groups (SIGs)

Nanophotonic and Plasmonic Metamaterials

The Nanophotonic and Plasmonic Metamaterials Special Interest Group encompasses a diverse range of topics, devices, and applications centred on the manipulation of light at sub-wavelength scales – including optical components, imaging and displays, data-storage technologies, metrology, security and sensing devices, and also fabrication and nanomaterial/nanoparticle synthesis.

The Group is keen to engage with members from industry and academia interested in collaborating in these areas, and in supporting their development, promotion, and expansion throughout the UK.

Through various engagement events we aim to establish a hub for discussion, networking, showcasing, and skill/capability matching amongst our members.
