Wireless Power Transfer via Strongly Coupled Magnetic Resonances
A quantitative model is presented describing the power transfer of self-resonant coils in a strongly coupled regime, which matches the experimental results to within 5%.
Efficient wireless non-radiative mid-range energy transfer
Coupled-mode theory for general free-space resonant scattering of waves
We present a universal coupled-mode-theory treatment of free-space scattering of waves from resonant objects. The range of applicability of the presented approach is fairly broad: it can be used for…
Roughness losses and volume-current methods in photonic-crystal waveguides
We present predicted relative scattering losses from sidewall roughness in a strip waveguide compared to an identical waveguide surrounded by a photonic crystal with a complete or incomplete gap in…

Temporal coupled-mode theory model for resonant near-field thermophotovoltaics
A temporal Coupled-Mode Theory model is developed to predict performance of resonant near-field ThermoPhotoVoltaic systems, which typically requires numerically intensive calculations. It is…

A class of axially uniform waveguides is introduced, employing a new mechanism to guide light inside a low-index dielectric material without the use of photonic band gap, and simultaneously…
‘Squeezing’ near-field thermal emission for ultra-efficient high-power thermophotovoltaic conversion
At high temperatures, the efficiency enhancement via resonant mode cross-coupling and matching can be extended to even higher power, by appropriately patterning the silver back electrode to enforce also an absorber effective surface-plasmon-polariton mode.
Transparent and ‘opaque’ conducting electrodes for ultra-thin highly-efficient near-field thermophotovoltaic cells
It is demonstrated that conducting electrodes ‘opaque’ to incoming far-field radiation can, in fact, be used in the near field with decent performance by taking advantage of evanescent photon tunneling from the emitter to the absorber.
Plasmonic-dielectric systems for high-order dispersionless slow or stopped subwavelength light.
A material platform of multilayered surface-plasmon-dielectric-polariton systems is introduced, along with a new physical mechanism enabling simultaneous cancellation of group-velocity and…
