Novel Plasmonic Materials and Nanodevices for Integrated Quantum Photonics
19 Jun 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Mikhail Shalaginov
This research focuses on color centers in diamond that share quantum properties with single atoms. These systems promise a path for the realization of practical quantum devices such as nanoscale sensors, single-photon sources, and quantum memories. In particular, we explored an intriguing...
Coherent Nonlinear Optical Propagation Processes in Hyperbolic Metamaterials
08 Jun 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Alexander K. Popov
Coherence and interference play an important role in classic and quantum physics. Processes to be employed can be significantly enhanced and the unwanted ones suppressed through the deliberately tailored constructive and destructed interference at quantum transitions and at nonlinear optical...

Laser Filtering, Metamaterials, and Commercializing Through the Lens of the Mythical Person Month
09 Jan 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Themos Kallos
In this work we investigate whether optical metamaterials in particular may require more than the typical resources to lead to successful commercialization. We also compare the estimated efforts with other technology commercialization projects of the recent past. ...

Optical Hyperspace: Light in Metamaterials with Hyperbolic Dispersion
03 Nov 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Evgenii Narimanov
The composites with opposite signs of the dielectric permittivity in two orthogonal directions, known as the hyperbolic metamaterials, represent a new "universality class" of optical media, with the light behavior which is qualitatively different from that in either metals or...
