The curriculum in Electromagnetics expects to include the students in research groups of the Departments that support scientifically the Ph.D. course.
Such groups perform research in Electromagnetics at a high and internationally recognized level. The Ph.D. students are
individually assigned a specific research topic for the course, during which they get acquainted with the many and rapidly evolving techniques adopted in the study of different problems under the guidance of supervisors. Several lines of research are available, concerning the frequency spectrum between industrial and optical frequencies of electromagnetic waves, the technologies of Physics, the analysis of materials by means of acoustic, electromagnetic, electro-optical, nuclear, optical and thermal techniques.

Emilio Matricciani (Politecnico di Milano), 29 e 30 gennaio, 5 e 6 febbraio 2019 (aula 7 via Eudossiana)
E1. Artificial Materials, Metamaterials and Plasmonics for electromagnetic applications (3 CFU) - II sem., prof. Fabrizio Frezza (Sapienza University of Rome)
Program: Frequency Selective Surfaces (FSS) and applications. Photonic (PBG) or Electromagnetic (EBG) Crystals and applications. Metamaterials and applications. The wire medium. Surface Plasmons and applications.
E2. Nanophotonics and Plasmonics (2 CFU) - II sem. prof. Concita Sibilia (Sapienza University of Rome)
Program: The part of seminars related to Nanophotonics aims to introduce to students some exciting concepts that differ from conventional wave optics, with particular emphasis to the role of the evanescent fields in many
practical applications, such as near field optical microscopy. The field of plasmonics (interaction of light with electrons in metals) has attracted a great deal of interest over the past two decades, but despite the many
fundamental breakthroughs and exciting science it has produced, it is yet to deliver on the applications that were initially targeted as most promising. The seminars proposed examine the primary fundamental hurdles in the
physics of plasmons that have been hampering practical applications and highlights some of the promising areas in which the field of plasmonics can realistically deliver.
E3. Basics of Nonlinear Optics (2 CFU) - II sem. prof. Concita Sibilia (Sapienza University of Rome)
Program: Nonlinear Optics (NLO) is the study of phenomena that occur as a consequence of the modification of the optical properties of a material system by the presence of light. Basics and more recent applications of NLO
to new light sources and devices will be presented in a series of seminars.
