The research field of plasmonics is concerned with the interaction of light with free electrons in conducting media, thus, having a natural emphasis on metal nanostructures while now also being explored in several other novel material systems ranging from macromolecules and two-dimensional materials (such as graphene) to doped semiconductors. The field of plasmonics is bridging fundamental research and diverse applications, embracing traditional topics such as sensing as well as emerging ones such as localized heating and hot-electron generation. The synergy of light with nanotechnology is opening a range of application areas important to society. After two decades of explosive growth, plasmonics is still going strong: according to “2019 Research Fronts”, the topic “Plasmonic properties of metal nanostructures” belongs to the top 10 research fronts in physics .
