Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is a strongly scattering material and has been regarded to have optical properties similar to biological tissues. In the present study, the bidirectional reflectance distribution function (BRDF) and the bidirectional transmittance distribution function (BTDF) of several PTFE films, with thicknesses from 0.11 to 10 mm, are(More)
The present study reports a novel concept of a direct solar thermal collector that harnesses the localized surface plasmon of metallic nanoparticles suspended in water. At the plasmon resonance frequency, the absorption and scattering from the nanoparticle can be greatly enhanced via the coupling of the incident radiation with the collective motion of(More)
In this work, we have demonstrated that two-wavelength thermoreflectance technique can be used to characterize the local thickness and temperature of heated cantilevers at steady-state operation. By taking the ratio of reflectances for two lasers with different wavelengths, the geometrical factor causing the mismatch between experimentally measured and(More)
A single nanowire resistive nano-heater (RNH) is fabricated, and it is demonstrated that the RNH can induce highly localized temperature fields, which can trigger highly localized thermo-chemical reactions to grow hierarchical nanowires directly at the desired specific spot such as ZnO nanowire branch growth on a single Ag nanowire.
This paper reports the design analysis of a microfabricatable mid-infrared (mid-IR) surface plasmon resonance (SPR) sensor platform. The proposed platform has periodic heavily doped profiles implanted into intrinsic silicon and a thin gold layer deposited on top, making a physically flat grating SPR coupler. A rigorous coupled-wave analysis was conducted to(More)
The present work describes a theoretical investigation of the near-field thermal radiation between doped Si plates coated with a mono-layer of graphene. It is found that the radiative heat flux between doped Si plates can be either enhanced or suppressed by introducing graphene layer, depending on the Si doping concentration and chemical potential of(More)
The present work theoretically analyzes the performance of the near-field thermophotovoltaic (TPV) energy conversion device for low temperature applications (Tsource ∼ 500 K). In the proposed TPV system, doped Si is employed as the source because its optical property can be readily tuned by changing the doping concentration, and InSb is selected as a TPV(More)
The present study theoretically investigates the radiative properties of a two-dimensional (2-D) multilayer structure that has a dielectric spacer between a metallic substrate and square cross-sectional metallic gratings. Differently from the one-dimensional metallic strips coated on a dielectric spacer atop an opaque metallic film [Opt. Express 16, 11328(More)
The energy streamline method based on the Poynting vector of the coupled forward and backward waves is used to study photon tunneling phenomenon associated with the lateral shift of energy path. Each point on the energy streamline indicates the direction of the net energy flow of a plane wave. In the tunneling configuration, the light energy of the(More)
Present work experimentally characterizes the optical property of blended plasmonic nanofuids based on gold nanorod (AuNR) with different aspect ratios. The existence of localized surface plasmon resonance was verified from measured extinction coefficient of three AuNR solutions, and spectral tunability of AuNR nanofluid was successfully demonstrated in the(More)
