We present a unified formal treatment of spectral methods applied to scattering from penetrable gratings for both acoustic (scalar) and electromagnetic (vector) problems. These are derived from coordinate space representations for both acoustic problems for a one-dimensional grating, and full electromagnetic problems for a two-dimensional grating. The(More)
Subwavelength-sized dielectric Mie resonators have recently emerged as a promising photonic platform, as they combine the advantages of dielectric microstructures and metallic nanoparticles supporting surface plasmon polaritons. Here, we report the capabilities of a dewetting-based process, independent of the sample size, to fabricate Si-based resonators(More)
We report the design, fabrication and experimental verification of an illusion device working at microwave frequencies. A two dimensional topology optimization procedure is employed to find the binary layout of a dielectric coating that, when wrapped around a metallic cylinder, mimics the scattering from a predefined, arbitrarily-shaped dielectric object.(More)
We propose an Adaptive Perfectly Matched Layer (APML) to be used in diffraction grating modeling. With a properly tailored co-ordinate stretching depending both on the incident field and on grating parameters, the APML may efficiently absorb diffracted orders near grazing angles (the so-called Wood's anomalies). The new design is implemented in a finite(More)
The diffractive behavior of arrays of square coaxial apertures in a gold layer is studied. These structures exhibit a resonant transmission enhancement that is used to design tunable bandpass filters for multispectral imaging in the 7-13 μm wavelength range. A modal analysis is used for this design and the study of their spectral features. Thus we show that(More)
We present the design of an all-dielectric cloaking device at microwave frequencies. A gradient based topology optimization is employed to find a dielectric permittivity distribution that minimizes the diffracted field in free space. The layout is binary, i.e. made either of standard ABS plastic or air and is designed to reduce the scattering from an ABS(More)
