Tags: nanophotonics


When optical components are reduced to the nanoscale, they exhibit interesting properties that can be harnessed to create new devices. For example, imagine a block of material with thin layers of alternating materials. This creates a periodic arrangement of alternating dielectric constants, forming a "photonic crystal" that is analogous to the electronic crystals used in semiconductor devices. Photonic crystals, along with quantum dots and other devices patterned at the nanoscale, may form the basis for sensors and switches used in computers and telecommunications.

  1. Atom-photon Interactions In 1D Photonic Crystals: From cQED to band-gap physics

    05 Jan 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Jonathan Hood

    We investigate opportunities that emerge from the integration of cold atoms with nanoscopic photonic crystal waveguides (PCWs). PCWs enable the light-matter interaction to be engineered for both trapping and strong atom-photon coupling, thereby opening new avenues for novel quantum transport and...

  2. A Crash Course in Nanophotonic Simulations

    18 Jun 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Peter Bermel

    This seminar will cover rapid, scalable computational methods used in simulating optical reflection,transmission, and absorption in complex structures. After a brief survey of the tools available, the S4 simulation tool will be demonstrated in detail.
