In order to break the limit of plasmonics, this paper reviews the principles and practices of nanophotonics. Nanophotonics is the technology utilizing the optical near fields to realize novel device, fabrications and systems. The optical near field is the elementary surface excitations on nanometric particles, or, in the other words, the dressed-photon which is the photon carrying the material energy. Nanophotonic devices including logic gates and an optical nano-fountain are demonstrated as the evidence of realizing the qualitative innovation which has been realized due to optical near field interaction between nanomatric particles.
