The recent years showed a vast increase in the number and diversity of photonics applications. This can be mainly addressed to
the arising of new nanofabrication techniques, to the development of new optical and structural characterization methods, and to
the increased accessibility and the rapid progress of computational modeling and design tools. Nanophotonics, where the
interplay of light with structures and devices with dimensions on the order of or below the wavelength of light are studied, is
one of the prominent and prospective research fields in this area. Mainly due to the ease of fabrication and the prospect of mass
production, especially thin-film devices incorporating corrugated, metallic or dielectric nanostructures are of particular interest.
To fully understand the arising phenomena and, ultimately, the experimentally obtained component or device behavior, it is of
paramount importance to develop, implement and verify appropriately tailored mathematical and computational modelling
approaches. I introduce the modelling activities performed at SDU’s NanoSYD-Nanophotonics group and present investigations
of the optical, plasmonic, and electric behavior in nanostructured photonic devices, with application to sensing, lighting and
material science.
