London Plasmonics Forum

The Plasmonics Forum has been running since 2015, and it typically attracts over 100 participants from London, UK, Europe and beyond. It aims to engage and connect researchers and industry who work in the ever-expanding field of Plasmonics.

This year’s event took place on Wednesday, 7th June 2023, at King’s College London.

The Plasmonics Forum is committed to showcasing the research of exceptional early career researchers (ECRs) working in the field. Continuing the tradition of the Plasmonics Forum, the majority of our speakers are ECRs.
