This program aimed to comprehensively address the plasmon-phonon and plasmon-magnon interaction in complex composite optical structures, often referred to as metamaterials. In particular, we focused on a material platform that comprises arrays of aligned plasmonic nanowires that are embedded into dielectric host. The program was a collaboration between University of Massachusetts at Lowell where the group of V. Podolskiy, PI of the project, worked on the theoretical aspects of the proposed work and Kings College London where the group of A. Zayats, co-PI of the project, worked on experimental efforts. The program, as originally proposed, has two main thrusts i understanding the acousto-optical phenomena in nanowire metamaterials, and ii understanding the magneto-optical phenomena in composites. The original time-table called for thrust i extending over first two years of the program and thrust ii taking the two latter years. The program was extended through a no-cost extension for a period of 6 months
