Light-matter Interaction at the Nano and Molecular Scale
Light-matter interaction is an old yet continuously fascinating topic. It is of direct relevance to applications as diverse as solar energy conversion, light-emitting devices, biomedical imaging and quantum information processing. Recent advances in materials and chemistry have allowed exquisite control over this interaction at the nano and molecular level, and newly-developed spectroscopic tools are being applied to elucidate the interaction mechanisms with unprecedentedly high temporal and spatial precision. This special issue collects the latest cutting-edge research under this broad context, contributed by both experimentalists and theoreticians, with a special focus on those from Asia.
