Quantum Plasmonics

Talk by Ulrik Lund Andersen, DTU

The emergent field of quantum plasmonics has received enormous interest due to its unique promises for the way light can be localized beyond the diffraction limit and manipulated at the nanoscale. One particular interesting application of quantum technologies based on surface plasmons is quantum information as it allows for scalability and coherent coupling to single emitters. 

In this talk I will discuss recent advances in the excitation and propagation of non-classical surface plasmons. In particular, I will address a recent experiment on the faithful transmission of squeezed states of light through plasmonic waveguides, and report on the recent progress on the excitation of single surface plasmons with Nitrogen-Vacancy centers in diamond
