“Light interaction with photonic and plasmonic resonances”

Resonator and resonator modes are an old topics, but much progress has been made recently on how to normalize and reconstruct scattered fields by using those modes.
Poorly understood basics have been clarified. The review is quite complete. It begins with basics, and move on towards more advanced concepts, and then describes how a good normalization of non-Hermitian (open and lossy) systems impact their physics, LDOS, Purcell, perturbation theory, strong coupling, superadiance.
