This book presents state-of-the-art contributions from a number of leading experts that actively work worldwide in the rapidly growing, highly interdisciplinary, and fascinating fields of aperiodic optics and complex photonics. Edited by Luca Dal Negro, a prominent researcher in these areas of optical science, the book covers the fundamental, computational, and experimental aspects of deterministic aperiodic structures, as well as numerous device and engineering applications to dense optical filters, nanoplasmonics photovoltaics and technologies, optical sensing, light sources, and nonlinear optics.
Table of Contents

"The authors have provided an important reference on a cutting-edge development of aperiodic structures in nanophotonics. Researchers and graduate students interested in nanophotonics, device development, and nonlinear wave structure interaction will benefit greatly from this book. In addition to an introduction to aperiodic order in nanophotonics and its importance for optical devices, this book covers propagation of electromagnetic waves in nonlinear aperiodic multilayers of arbitrary geometry and complex plasmonic nanostructures. The discussion of optical based filters, based on fractal and other aperiodic structures as well as pseudorandom lasers, should be helpful to readers. ... Researchers interested in quasi-periodic applications will appreciate the coverage of plasmonic concentrators and thin film organic solar thin films."
