Course summary

This MSc in Physics stream focuses on the area where nanotechnology and photonics meet, delivering the manipulation and control of light on the nanoscale, and training you in an exciting new field. This new field has already lead to exciting phenomenon such as negative refractive index materials and ‘cloaking’, and is the driving force behind many new applications in areas ranging from telecommunications and computing to green energy and healthcare. Topics covered by the course include: The fundamental concepts of imaging light and optical systems; General concepts of Plasmonics and Metamaterials; Plasmonics for surface enhanced spectroscopies, photovoltaics and non-linear optics; Negative refractive index materials and transformation optics; Quantum Metamaterials; etc. With nanophotonics at the forefront of both research and new industrial applications, students from this course will be trained in a field that is likely to grow as new start-ups and established companies employ nanophotonics in their business. Assessment involves the following: Coursework; Dissertation; Examination; Oral presentation; Poster; Practical; Viva and Written report.
