Conference Symposium

Symposium:  "Resonant dielectric nanostructures and metamaterials"

Chairs: Boris Luk'yanchuk (A*STAR, Singapore); Yury Kivshar (The Australian National University, Australia); Mark Brongersma (Stanford University, USA) and Lukas Novotny (ETH Zurich, Sweetzerland).

Co-Chairs: Andrey Miroshnichenko (The Australian National University, Australia) and Arseniy Kuznetsov (A*STAR, Singapore).

Resonant high-refractive index dielectric and semiconductor nanostructures are novel objects in nanophotonics. Similar to metals, they can have strong resonant behaviour of both electric and magnetic nature at optical frequencies. However, in contrast to metals, dielectric nanostructures do not rely on real electron currents and can thus be completely loss-free. This section will cover all topics related to resonant optical properties of high-refractive index dielectric and semiconductor nano- and microstructures, and their applications.


  1. Hybrid metamaterials and their applications for energy, lighting, catalysis and sensing
  2. Directional scattering by dielectric particles and dielectric nanoantennas
  3. All-dielectric metamaterials
  4. Applications of high-refractive index dielectric nanostructures
