Photonics and electronics are endlessly converging into a single technology by exploiting the possibilities given by nanostructuring of materials and devices. It is expected that next-generation optoelectronics devices will show great improvements in terms of performance, flexibility, and energy consumption. The main limits of nanoelectronics are overcome by using a photonic approach and, on the other hand, nanophotonics has become a mature technology thanks to the miniaturization strategies developed in microelectronics.
Mastering such a complex topic requires a multidisciplinary approach and a solid knowledge of several topics. This book describes recent advances in nanophotonic and nanoelectronic systems while keeping an eye on real applications of such technologies. Starting from pure photonic systems, the monograph describes several examples in which the interaction between photonics and electronics is exploited to achieve faster, compact, and more efficient devices.
Professor J.-C. S. Levy (Paris Diderot) has a long experience in magnetic materials, their magnetic structures, and their resonance properties. He has had numerous collaborations with P. Monceau (Paris Diderot) and Ph. Depondt (UPMC). V. Repain (Paris Diderot), G. Viau (INSA Toulouse), and coworkers already share a large experience in magnetic nanoparticle preparation and analysis by different means. M. Krawczyk, J. Klos, and S. Mamica (UAM Poznan) have been working on magnonics at the highest level since years with numerous international collaborations within "magnonic networks." F. Varret and his team (UVSQ) are world leaders in the field of magnetic excited states.
