Modern photonics and plasmonics belong to the most dynamically evolving branches of contemporary applied physics with strong impact on a broad range of human activities. This joint project of the Czech Technical University in Prague, Institute of Photonics and Electronics CAS, and Brno University of Technology is primarily focused at the theoretical analysis and numerical simulations of unconventional phenomena and novel advanced functionalities of subwavelength photonic and plasmonic structures, characteristivc dimesions of which are smalleer that their operation wavelength.

The main areas of research addressed in this project include subwavelength guided-wave structures with periodic and quasiperiodic modulation with applications especially in spectral filters,active and nonlinear subwavelength structures with modulation of gain and loss, and nonlocal resonant effects in subwavelength plasmonic structures. In parallel with this research, development of necessary physical models and specific numerical techniques is also carried out. Strong participation of undergraduate and graduate students and application of results in education is also envisaged.

The main goal of the project is to gain insight into the underlying linear and nonlinear mechanisms providing platform for exploring new effects and offering possibilities in emerging applications. Knowledge newly acquired in this project is immediately utilized in the course of education of university students, some of which are directly participating in research.

IPE carries out fundamental and applied research in the scientific fields of photonics, optoelectronics and electronics. In these fields, IPE generates new knowledge and develops new technologies.
