Advances in Modeling Plasmonic Systems
With great advances in nano-fabrication and optical characterization the research field of nano-plasmonics has been enjoying a significant growth in the last two decades. Notwithstanding experimental capabilities, theory and computational modeling has also advanced, where new directions include, for example, multi-scale electromagnetic modeling of nanomaterials, quantum plasmonics or machine learning-based plasmonic system design. Modeling of plasmonic materials and phenomena at the nanoscale, such as plasmonic spectroscopy, can range from classical electromagnetic theory to first-principles electronic structure of solid and molecular materials in a multidisciplinary approach. This Special Issue highlights theoretical advances in quantum plasmonics, nonlocal plasmonics, nonequilibrium nanoplasmonics, plasmonic spectroscopy, strong-coupling, nanostructure design and multi-scale modeling, among related topics of interest.
