Nonlocality in metallo-dielectric nanostructures

Antoine Moreau

Université Clermont Auvergne

Antoine Moreau is an Assistant Professor at Clermont Auvergne University, in France. He is a specialist of modeling and numerical methods in electromagnetic optics. Since a one-year stay as an visiting scholar in David Smith's group at Duke University, he has focused on plasmonics. More precisely, he has studied film-coupled nanocubes and gap-plasmon resonators (MIM structures) as well as the impact of spatial dispersion in metals on their optical response. Optimization of photonic structures is another subject that has attracted his attention. Finally, he is happy you are reading his biography.


Drude's model is at the very heart of plasmonics, providing the almost unique way to take into account the response of metals. In 2012, a landmark experiment showed that Drude's model is not able to accurately give the... [ view full abstract ]
