The unique capabilities and advantages of nanotechnology in developing next generation integrated photonic chips are discussed. Nanophotonic materials allow obtaining gigantic polarization and wavelength dispersion, which is useful for the design of dispersion compensators and dispersion management devices. The design of artificial nanostructured materials and integrated photonic systems involves the accurate solution of electromagnetic optics equations, and the need to incorporate the material and quantum physics equations. Near-field interactions in artificial nanostructured materials provide a variety of functionalities useful for optical systems integration.
