Summary Nanophotonics is a comprehensive introduction to the emerging area concerned with controlling and shaping optical fields at a subwavelength scale. Photonic crystals and microcavities are extensively described, including non-linear optical effects. Local-probe techniques are presented and are used to characterize plasmonic devices. The emerging fields of semiconductor nanocrystals and nanobiophotonics are also presented. Written by distinguished scientists, it provides comprehensive coverage of the field, from the basics to the most advanced technologies, and as such will be of great interest to
