Abstract

The 6th International Conference on Surface Plasmon Photonics (SPP6) was held in Ottawa, Canada from May 26th to 31st, 2013. This independent series of biennial conferences is widely regarded as the premier series in the field, and the 6th edition maintained the tradition of excellence. This Focus Issue collects several papers related to research presented at SPP6, and although the number of papers it comprises is small compared to the total number of papers presented at the conference, the issue is representative and provides a good snapshot of the field at this point in time.
