Plasmon Resonances in Nanoparticles

Dr. Isaak D. Mayergoyz (ECE/UMIACS) published a book titled “Plasmon Resonances in Nanoparticles” in early 2013 as part of the World Scientific Series in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. The book will be released in February of 2013.

Published by World Scientific Publishing Co. and printed in Singapore, Mayergoyz’s book is Volume 6 of the series. A brief summary of the volume reads:

“This unique volume provides a broad introduction to plasmon resonances in nanoparticles and their novel applications. Here, plasmon resonances are treated as an eigenvalue problem for specific boundary integral equations and general physical properties of plasmon spectrum are studied in detail. The coupling of incident radiation to specific plasmon modes, the time dynamics of their excitation and dephasing are also analytically treated. The applications of plasmon resonances to the enhancement of magneto-optic effects in garnets, to heat-assisted magnetic recording (HAMR), to all-optical magnetic recording and to SERS are presented. Finally, an interesting connection between spectral analysis of plasmon resonances and the Riemann Hypothesis is explored, as well.”

Other books published in the World Scientific Series in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology discuss subjects such as molecular electronics, nanostructures and nanomaterials, molecular cluster magnets, plasmonics, and inorganic nanomaterials. The authors of these publications are from various countries including Spain, Germany, United Kingdom, Israel and the U.S.
