8.1      INTRODUCTION

The rapid surge of nano-optics in recent years has been fueled by both the fast growth of laser technology1 and significant advances in nanofabrication techniques.2 Modern experimental equipment allows researchers to go far beyond the diffraction limit to explore optics at the deep nanoscale, opening up a wide variety of applications ranging from metamaterials3 and nanoscale plasmonic devices4 through plasmonic circuitry5 and efficient solar energy harvesting ...
