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...
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...
Photonic Metamaterials: From Linear to Nonlinear Optics
14 Dec 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Natalia Litchinitser
Metamaterials open unparalleled opportunities for "engineering" previously inaccessible values of refractive indices from positive to near-zero and even negative values, and new avenues for light manipulation. While an enormous progress has been made in the field of linear optics of uniform...
Photonic Structures with Topological Robustness: from Classical to Quantum
09 Jan 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Mohammad Hafezi
In this talk, I demonstrate how similar physics can be observed for photons; specifically, how various quantum Hall Hamiltonians can be simulated in an optical platform. I report on the first observation of topological photonic edge state using silicon-on-insulator technology and our recent...

Slow and Fast Light - Penetrating the Fog
16 Dec 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Jacob B. Khurgin
Performance of optical delay lines and nonlinear devices based on slow wave propagation in photonic crystal waveguides in the presence of higher order dispersion is analyzed and compared with other slow light schemes, such as coupled resonators and media with electromagnetically-induced...
Surprising Nanophotonic Phenomena in Nature
11 Jul 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Peter Bermel
A broad range of optical phenomena in nature have created long-standing mysteries. For example, what gives butterflies and birds their rich colors? And how can sightings of some unusual natural phenomena like mirages or ball lightning be explained? The process of solving these mysteries has...
Surprising Nanophotonic Phenomena in Nature and Photonic Modeling with S4
17 Aug 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Peter Bermel
I will show how S4sim, a transfer matrix-based optical simulation tool available on nanoHUB.org can be used to precisely calculate these behaviors. A few exciting real-world applications of this work will also be briefly discussed.
