Ferrara to Present at SPP6 Conference

Dr. Davon Ferrara, assistant professor of physics, will present at the 6th International Conference on Surface Plasmon Photonics (SPP6). The conference is being held in Ottawa, Canada, the week of May 26-31.

Plasmonics is a rapidly growing and evolving field on the cutting edge of optical science and engineering. The SPP conference series is the premier international series of conferences in this field. SPP6 will bring together about 700 plasmonics experts from across the globe, both junior and senior, from academia and industry, to share their latest results and set the agenda for future developments in the field.

Ferrara will present a talk titled “Gold Nanodisks as Near-Field Probes of the Insulator-to-Metal Transition in VO2.” The research paper concerning this work has been submitted for publication and was done through collaborations with Vanderbilt University.
