Scope The prospect of controlling the properties of light with nanometer-scale precision by coupling the electromagnetic field to the oscillation of surface electrons in metals has driven the field of plasmonics for over three decades. Since then, remarkable fundamental insights into the interactions between light and matter at the nanoscale have been achieved.
Plasmonic nanocomposites materials integrate both (a) a plasmonic metallic nanoparticle with (b) an assortment of other similar/dissimilar nanostructures leading to new multifunctional systems with improved functionalities and properties. By varying material composition and their geometry, one could control the architecture of molecules and materials on the 1 – 100 nm length scale. These developments resulted in a myriad of state-of-the-art nanocomposite materials that show enormous potential for a wide range of new applications. These include ultrasensitive spectroscopic sensing, biological sensing, drug delivery, lithography, catalysis, optics, metamaterials, energy generation, storage, and conversion.
This symposium will cover the recent achievements in the design, fabrication and application of plasmonic nanocomposites in different fields of science including material science, medicine, and industry, and it will cover their significant impact on global society. We expect to have sessions that focus on the design and development of nanoparticle-based materials that have applications ranging from sensing, and optics to bio-diagnostic and therapeutic implications.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

• Theoretical understanding, synthesis and optical properties of noble metal nanostructures and their application in surface chemistry
• Computational and experimental methods used to design novel nanomaterials, such as 2D semiconductors
• Theoretical and experimental methods used to design two-dimensional plasmonic composite materials with for thermoplasmonics, biosensing, detection, solar cells and energy storage
• Plasmonics’ properties and applications of 2D nanomaterials
• Advances and developments in techniques for ultrafast detection of trace levels of chemical and biological analytes, e.g. surface plasmon resonance and near-field scanning optical microscopy
• Advances and developments of plasmonic semiconductor materials for potential use in the standard telecommunications fiber-optics windows

The scope of the focused sessions will cover plasmonic nanocomposite synthesis, characterization and use in various applications, such as:
• Innovative synthetic routes of plasmonic nanocomposite materials, such as metal-polymers, metal-metal oxides, metal-graphene, metal-semiconductors, etc.
• Fundamental properties and applications of plasmonic composite nanomaterials, such as ultrafast sensing, electronics, optics, environmental, chemical and bio-chemical applications, etc.
• Computational and experimental methods used to augment experimental studies in this field
