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.

  2. Exploring Synthetic Quantum Materials in Superconducting Circuits

    30 Apr 2020 |

    Superconducting circuits have emerged as a competitive platform for quantum computation, satisfying the challenges of controllability, long coherence and strong interactions. I will show our recent experiments to apply this toolbox to the exploration of strongly correlated quantum materials made...

  7. Optical Hyperspace: Light in Hyperbolic Materials

    14 Jan 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Evgenii Narimanov

    Hyperbolic metamaterias are strongly anisotropic composite media that behave as either metals or dielectrics in different directions. They can be fabricated n many different ways, such as metallic layers that are separated from each other by thin dielectric spacers, or using arrays of parallel...
