14:00 – 15:00 Webinar via Zoom

From Electronics to Photonics - replaced by Plasmonics?

Simulation of photonic components, circuits and systems enables more robust and optimized designs. At the same time, simulation promises to reduce development time and cost, and achieve faster time-to-market. Device- and system-level tools enable designers to model interacting optical, electrical and thermal effects.

Learn about the topics covered at ETHZ's Institute for Electromagnetic Fields by Prof. Dr. Jürg Leuthold in a compact webinar. Prof. Leuthold will give an introduction to the field of plasmonics - the new technology that is set to replace photonics.  He will give insights into current research at the institute and present applications in the fields of communication and sensor technology.
