  1. 1. Plasmons in Nanostructured Graphene

    Författare :Tobias Wenger; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; linear response theory; surface plasmon-polaritons; Plasmons; surface electrodynamics; plasmonics; graphene; random phase approximation;

    Sammanfattning : Plasmons, collective electron density oscillations, provide physicists with intriguing challenges and possibilities. The inherent many-body properties of the plasmons together with their ability to localize light into small volumes make the plasmons interesting from both a purely theoretical viewpoint and an applications point of view.

  2. 2. Exciton-plasmon interactions in metal-semiconductor nanostructures

    Författare :Staffan Hellström; Ying Fu; Mikael Käll; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; plasmons; excitons; quantum dots; nanoparticles; FDTD; surface plasmon polaritons; QDIP; quantum dot infrared photodetector; polaritons;

    Sammanfattning : Semiconductor quantum dots and metal nanoparticles feature very strong light-matter interactions, which has led to their use in many photonic applications such as photodetectors, biosensors, components for telecommunications etc.Under illumination both structures exhibit collective electron-photon resonances, described in the frameworks of quasiparticles as exciton-polaritons for semiconductors and surface plasmon-polaritons for metals.

    Sammanfattning : The dispersion property of periodic structures is a hot research topic in the last decade. By exploiting dispersion properties, one can manipulate the propagation of electromagnetic waves, and produce effects that do not exist in conventional materials. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Optical properties of active photonic materials

    Författare :Yong Zeng; Ying Fu; Philip Russell; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; nanophotonics; plasmonics; Theoretical chemistry; Teoretisk kemi;

    Sammanfattning : Because of the generation of polaritons, which are quasiparticles possessing the characteristics of both photonics and electronics, active photonic materials offer a possible solution to transfer electromagnetic energy below the diffraction limit and further increase the density of photonic integrated circuits. A theoretical investigation of these exciting materials is, therefore, very important for practical applications. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Magnetoplasmonic nanostructures

    Författare :Emil Melander; Vassilios Kapaklis; Björgvin Hjörvarsson; Evangelos Th. Papaioannou; Paolo Vavassori; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Magnetism; nanostructures; plasmons; magneto-optics; magnetoplasmonics; Physics with spec. in Atomic; Molecular and Condensed Matter Physics; Fysik med inriktning mot atom- molekyl- och kondenserande materiens fysik;

    Sammanfattning : Surfaces that are nanopatterned, metallic, and magnetic can support surface plasmon resonances, providing an alternative and effective way to reconfigure flat optical components. Utilising a range of near- and far-field characterisation techniques, the optical and magneto-optical properties of lithographically patterned thin magnetic films are investigated. LÄS MER
