Electromagnetic Field Matter Interactions in Thermoelastic Solids and Viscous Fluids
Journal of Physics. B: Atomic Molecular and Optical Physics JPhysB is delighted to announce a forthcoming special issue on Correlations in light-matter interactions , to appear in , and invites you to submit a paper. The interaction of electromagnetic radiation and matter is of central importance in nature and of wide interest for both basic and applied research. Especially the fundamental understanding of light-driven many-body quantum dynamics and the underlying correlations remains a key fundamental challenge in physics and promises vast future applications in natural sciences and engineering. In fact, the question for correlation effects in light-matter interactions connects many scientific areas, including. Novel detection techniques and light sources have opened up routes to prepare, probe, and trace ultrafast correlated processes and quantum effects in the light-matter interactions with unprecedented detail. Free electron lasers, waveform-controlled femtosecond laser fields, and non-classical light sources as well as advances in many-particle theory enable the realization of new insightful experiments and simulations undreamed of 20 years ago.

At the beginning of the 20th century, researchers began harnessing the capabilities of electricity and magnetism. Today we are standing in a similar position as we contemplate the emergence of light—matter interactions at the nanoscale and how it will continue its exponential growth over the coming years. This research field, also called nanophotonics or nano-optics, is a subject of rapidly increasing scientific importance: controlling light—matter interactions beyond the diffraction limit. In contrast to optics, which is the concept of light rays, including absorption, transmission and reflection, photonics is the concept of light science, including emission, detection, amplification and control of light. Photonics offers a wide range of applications in different areas ranging from sensing and imaging, to solar cells and optical communication [ 1 ]. It is no surprise that many consider photonics to be the technology revolution of the 21st century.
Nano-optics has become a very efficient tool to control light—matter interactions beyond the diffraction limit. The understanding of the optical response from individual and coupled nanoparticles has led to unprecedented development in a wide spectrum of scientific disciplines, ranging from molecular optics and biology, to nonlinear spectroscopy and clean energy. Research in the field of nano-optics now presents an opportunity to build on the existing work and establish novel directions for this area of research. Related to this goal, this Thematic Series covers various interactions between light and matter occuring on the nanoscale including:. This thematic issue is complete.
