Nanotechnology is crucial in realizing compact photonic systems for light routing and conditioning with ever more complex optical functions. It also promises to elevate the precision of experiments in high-precision optical metrology to an unprecedented level, e.g., optical atomic clocks and gravitational wave detectors - the most precise experiments ever developed by humankind. In this contribution, Prof. Dr. Stefanie Kroker gives an overview of the development and possibilities of nanophotonic devices for applications in precision optical experiments. She explains relevant physical phenomena of light-matter interaction and illustrates the role of material properties in these experiments.
