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.

  8. Tutorial on Two Photon Lithography Tool

    26 Nov 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Mohammad Mahfuzul Kabir, Varun Ajit Kelkar

    Two-photon lithography (TPL) is a nano-scale 3-d fabrication technique. TPL depends upon the two-photon polymerization process, whereby two incident photons of light are absorbed by a precursor material leading to polymerization. The smallest feature size (voxel) achievable in a TPL...

    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...

  14. What is Markovian and non-Markovian in Quantum Mechanics: New Approaches and Viewpoints

    15 May 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Francesco Ciccarello

    While in classical physics the notion of what is Markovian or not is well defined, this is not the case when it comes to open quantum systems. What makes a quantum dynamics Markovian or non-Markovian (NM)? Traditional answers to this question involve the celebrated Lindblad master equation (ME)...
