Sergey I Bozhevolnyi is a Professor and Head of Centre for Nano Optics at the University of Southern Denmark (SDU) and a Chair of Technical Science at Danish Institute of Advanced Study. His current research interests include linear and nonlinear nano-optics and plasmonics, including plasmonic interconnects, quantum plasmonics and metasurfaces. Prof. Bozhevolnyi is a Fellow of Optical Society of America (2007), elected member of Danish Academy of Natural Sciences (2010) and Danish Academy of Technical Sciences (2019). He has been on the list of Highly Cited Researchers (top 1%) by the Institute of Scientific Information every year since 2017. In 2020, he was awarded the European Physical Society – Quantum Electronics and Optics Division (EPS-QEOD) Prize for Research in Laser Science and Applications for his research in plasmonics.
Latest developments in nanophotonics associated with advantageous use of surface plasmon polaritons, hybrid excitations involving free electron oscillations in metals and electromagnetic fields in dielectrics, are overviewed. Special attention is given to the progress in ultra-compact photonic circuitry, including modulators and detectors, and plasmonic metasurfaces dynamically controlling propagation of light.
