Optical encryption has become a significant research field due to its remarkable advantages [1-5]. The unique features of plasmonics have drawn researchers’ attention towards the role which it can play in information security [3 & 4]. The electric field is greatly enhanced when a metallic nanoparticle is illuminated by an appropriate electromagnetic field. The distribution and enhancement of ...

Multiple-Mode Polymeric-Silicon Dual-Channel Gas Sensors

K. Liang [1], A. Dodabalapur [1], D. Sharma [1],
[1] Microelectronics Research Center, University of Texas, Austin, TX, USA

An organic-inorganic dual-channel sensor makes a strong chemical gas sensor because this device design combines the high chemical sensitivities and selectivity of organic semiconductors [1-4] with the superior electrical performance and convenient integration of silicon semiconductors. As shown in the device schematic in Figure 1, the organic channel is the chemically-active material and is ...

Effective control over single atom emission might lead to major breakthrough in the field of nanotechnology. It is believed that use of hyperbolic metamaterials (HMM) can be helpful. COMSOL Multiphysics® was used to model interaction of electric dipole with effective HMM and calculate emission rate of dipole in comparison to that value in the absence of metamaterial. Dielectric nanoantennas of ...

Liquid Crystal Based Terahertz Metamaterial Absorbers

Wang Lei [1],
[1] Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications, Nanjing, China

Metamaterial-based absorbers play a significant role in applications ranging from energy harvesting and thermal emitters to sensors and imaging devices. The middle dielectric layer of conventional metamaterial absorbers has always been solid. Researchers could not detect the near field distribution in this layer or utilize it effectively. Here, we use anisotropic liquid crystal as the dielectric ...

Simulating the Response of Planar Photonic Structures Under the Strain of Surface Acoustic Waves

O. D. D. Couto Jr. [1], A. C. T. Covacevice [1],
[1] Instituto de Física Gleb Wataghin, Universidade Estadual de Campinas, Campinas, SP, Brazil

In this contribution, we simulate the optical response of piezoelectric planar optical microcavities (POMCs) under the modulation introduced by a propagating surface acoustic wave (SAW). The physical picture of the model is shown in Figure 1. A metallic interdigital transducer (IDT) is placed on the sample surface and, via inverse piezoelectric effect, is responsible for the generation of SAWs ...

By introducing a periodic modulation in a waveguide, it is possible to create an interaction between forward-traveling and backward-traveling modes of an optical waveguide. Bragg grating may be a one dimensional diffraction grating which diffracts light from the forward-traveling mode into the backward traveling mode. Since the Bragg grating reflects at the wavelength for which it is ...

Study of the Anomalous Reflection from the Ultra-thin Metallic Nano-strip Antenna

胡德骄 [1], 庞霖 [1], 杜惊雷 [1],
[1] 四川大学,成都,四川,中国

Introduction: A metal film whose thickness is smaller than the skin depth, is of high transmission in the visible and half-transparent in the near infrared. However, when the film is divided into discrete nano-strips (i.e. array), an enhanced anomalous reflection and suppressed transmission take place. It was reported that this phenomenon is attributed to the Localize Surface Plasmon Resonance ...

[1] Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Pennsylvania State University - University Park, State College, PA, USA

Phonons underlie the propagation of sound and the transport of heat in materials. With outstanding progress in the design of phononic crystals, it is now feasible to control the acoustic properties of these materials and to endow them with unique acoustic properties. For instance, it has been shown that by decreasing the characteristic dimensions of a phononic crystal, the ability to control ...
