We show that the positioning of a nanometer length scale dielectric object, such as a diamond nanocrystal, in the vicinity of a gold bowtie nanoantenna can be used to tune the plasmonic mode spectrum on the order of a linewidth. We further show that the intrinsic luminescence of gold enhanced in the presence of nanometer-scale roughness couples efficiently(More)
We introduce a novel concept of an inside-out (or inverse) cloak for electromagnetic waves based on the coordinate transformation of Maxwell's equations. This concept can be employed for creating absorbing non-reflecting media as matching layers in numerical simulations. In contrast to the commonly used perfectly matched layers, such absorbing boundaries(More)
Close to charge neutrality, the electronic properties of graphene and its multilayers are sensitive to electron-electron interactions. In bilayers, for instance, interactions are predicted to open a gap between valence and conduction bands, turning the system into an insulator. In mono and (Bernal-stacked) trilayers, which remain conducting at low(More)
—In the present paper, we show that it is possible to use a periodic structure of disconnected elements (e.g. a line of rods) to guide electromagnetic waves, in the direction of the periodicity. To study such segmented waveguides, we use the concept of quasimodes associated to complex frequencies. The numerical determination of quasimodes is based on a(More)

We demonstrate numerically a 2-D nanostructured design for light trapping in a low band-gap polymer solar cell. Finite element method simulations are used to study the effect of varying nanostructure periodicity, height, and shape on active layer absorption. Maintaining a constant active layer thickness of 100nm we observe an enhancement in solar absorption(More)
The authors describe the EEG recordings of 107 patients with acute severe cranial trauma and signs of axial lesions. The initial EEG included: sleep patterns, alternating tracings, alpha band tracings which were either nonreactive pseudo-alpha or modulated alpha often reactive, and diffuse slow wave tracings. They found no particular tracing corresponding(More)
