Plasmonics and metamaterials have attracted considerable attention over the past decade in the fields of superlens, cloaking, absorber, etc. Recently, plasmonics and metamaterials have seen a dramatic increase of novel ideas with combination of new materials and structures, creating a new horizon, so-called plasmonic metamaterials. Recent advances in plasmonics and metamaterials have realized many interesting functionalities in devices from ultraviolet to terahertz wavelength for bio-medical, sensor, display and other nanophotonic applications. Papers in this thematic series will introduce and review the recent advances in the field of the novel plasmonics and metamaterials devices to discover the possibility of the practical applications of plasmonics and metamaterials.
