Plasmonic Nanoparticle Lattices as an Expansive Meta-Optics Platform
The miniaturization of bulk optical components such as lasers and lenses has revolutionized modern optoelectronic devices, from cameras in smart phones to high-resolution displays to wearable optics. Driving advances have relied not only on a reduction in footprint but also on a completely new design of the optical components based on discrete, nanoscale building blocks. This talk will describe how lattices of metal nanoparticles can function as a simple yet powerful platform for nanoscale meta-optics. We will discuss breakthroughs in the design and fabrication of plasmonic nanoparticle lattices that have enabled an expanding suite of applications, from nanoscale lasing to imaging to photo-electrocatalysis.

Teri W. Odom is Charles E. and Emma H. Morrison Professor of Chemistry and Chair of the Chemistry Department at Northwestern University. She is an expert in designing structured nanoscale materials that exhibit extraordinary size and shape-dependent optical and physical properties. Odom has pioneered a suite of multi-scale nanofabrication tools that have resulted in plasmon-based nanoscale lasers that exhibit tunable color, flat optics that can manipulate light at the nanoscale, and hierarchical substrates that show controlled wetting and super-hydrophobicity. She has also invented a class of biological nanoconstructs that are facilitating unique insight into nanoparticle-cell interactions and that show superior imaging and therapeutic properties because of their gold nanostar shape.
