    The goal To introduce students with concepts of electromagnetic optics, nanooptics, and nanophotonics, with emphasize on current trends and most recent research results. To introduce students with methods of modeling, micro- and nanofabrication, characterization, and applications of nanophotonic devices and structures.
    The outcome Students will gain skills for applications of nanooptics and nanophotonics concepts to solve practical problems in various areas of electrical engineering, ranging from informatics to biomedicine.
    Contents of lectures Introduction to nanooptics and nanophotonics; diffractive optical elements; photonic crystals; near-field optics: SNOM and nanoantennas; subwavelength optics; metamaterials with negative index of refraction; EOT; interaction of light and nanostructures; plasmonics and nanoplasmonics; non-traditional forms of light.
    Contents of exercises Problem-solving classes related to theoretical part of the course.
