Summary and Future Outlook

  • Motoichi OhtsuEmail author
Part of the Nano-Optics and Nanophotonics book series (NON)


This chapter summarizes the discussions in each chapter of this book and presents the future outlook for dressed-photon (DP) technology. Section 9.1 summarizes the discussions in Chaps.  2 8, and highlights the differences between technologies that exploit phenomena involving DPs and those involving propagating light. Differences in their theoretical treatments are also summarized. The future outlook for DP technology will be given in Sect. 9.2.
