The control of light interaction at the nanometer scale is believed to be the tools for the buildup of the next generation of photonics devices. To accomplish this new architecture of nano-devices, featured interaction of light with individual molecules and molecular structures as quantum dots have to be fully exploited. These features are based the intense local optical fields at the nanoscale level, created within the molecules and molecular structures, where strong nonlinear optical interactions take place. Relevant applications within this field are emission control, single photon emitters, nano-focusing, nano-antenna probes and light commanded nano-devices for a wide range of applications as nanomedicine. The event will stress out the relevance of this new field and point out to future directions namely on establishment of collaborative international research within this field.

 This Workshop will be held in the Room 213, Building I, Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Caparica, Portugal. For more info, read the dedicated page.
