ECE Professor Isaak Mayergoyz authored "Plasmon Resonances in Nanoparticles" which was published by World Scientific in February 2013. This text provides a broad introduction to plasmon resonances in nanoparticles and their novel applications.

In October, the digital version of the text ranked fourth among World Scientific’s most downloaded ebooks. The sixth volume in the World Scientific Series in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology is geared toward graduate students and researchers. Mayergoyz treats plasmon resonances as an eigenvalue problem for specific boundary integral equations and general physical properties of the plasmon spectrum are studied in detail. The coupling of incident radiation to specific plasmon modes, the time dynamics of their excitation and dephasing are also analytically treated. Finally, the applications of plasmon resonances to SERS, light controllability (gating) of plasmon resonances in semiconductor nanoparticles, the use of plasmon resonances in thermally assisted magnetic recording (TAMR), as well as in all-optical magnetic recording and for enhancement of magneto-optic effects are presented. Possible connections between the eigen value formalism of plasmon resonances and the Riemann Hypothesis are explored.

Professor Mayergoyz became a full professor of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of University of Maryland, College Park in 1980. In cooperation with Prof. Fawzi Emad, he established the electric power engineering curriculum and educational program in the ECE Department and has maintained it for more than 30 years. For many years, he served as a consultant for the Research and Development Center of General Electric Company and has been selected as a visiting research fellow of this center. He has authored and coauthored 12 books and over 350 scientific papers. He is a Fellow of IEEE (1988), Visiting Research Fellow of GE Research and Development Center (1988), Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Magnetics Society (1994), Distinguished Scholar-Teacher of University of Maryland, College Park (1994) and a recipient of Outstanding Teacher Award of College of Engineering (1987). In 2009, he received the Achievement Award of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Magnetics Society, the highest award given by the society. He has served on numerous IEEE committees, editorial boards of scientific journals and as the Editor of Academic Press-Elsevier Electromagnetism series.
