We first review the recent developments and novel applications for space-time-frequency metasurfaces. Then we outline hybrid, plasmonic-photonic meta-structures for quantum information systems and discuss a new unorthodox approach for high-speed quantum photonics operating at THz rates. The use of plasmonics to optimize light-matter coupling and speed-up quantum processes so that they outpace quantum decoherence and losses will be also discussed.
Vladimir M. Shalaev, Scientific Director for Nanophotonics at Birck Nanotechnology Center and Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University, specializes in nanophotonics, plasmonics, optical metamaterials and quantum photonics. Prof. Shalaev has received several awards for his research in the field of nanophotonics and metamaterials, including the Max Born Award of the Optical Society of America for his pioneering contributions to the field of optical metamaterials, the Willis E. Lamb Award for Laser Science and Quantum Optics, IEEE Photonics Society William Streifer Scientific Achievement Award, Rolf Landauer medal of the ETOPIM (Electrical, Transport and Optical Properties of Inhomogeneous Media) International Association, the UNESCO Medal for the development of nanosciences and nanotechnologies, and the OSA and SPIE Goodman Book Writing Award.
