We experimentally demonstrate a high resolution integrated spectrometer on silicon on insulator (SOI) substrate using a large-scale array of microdonut resonators. Through top-view imaging and processing, the measured spectral response of the spectrometer shows a linewidth of ~0.6 nm with an operating bandwidth of ~50 nm. This high resolution and bandwidth… (More)
Silver nanocubes (AgNCs), 60 nm, have four extinction surface plasmon resonance (SPR) peaks. The finite difference time domain (FDTD) simulation method is used to assign the absorption and scattering peaks and also to calculate the plasmon field intensity for AgNCs. Because AgNCs have a highly symmetric cubic shape, there is a uniform distribution of the… (More)
We present a novel approach for achieving tightly concentrated optical field by a hybrid photonic-plasmonic device in an integrated platform, which is a triangle-shaped metal taper mounted on top of a dielectric waveguide. This device, which we call a plasmomic light concentrator (PLC), can achieve vertical coupling of light energy from the dielectric… (More)
We show that significant water wave amplification is obtained in a water resonator consisting of two spatially separated patches of small-amplitude sinusoidal corrugations on an otherwise flat seabed. The corrugations reflect the incident waves according to the so-called Bragg reflection mechanism, and the distance between the two sets controls whether the… (More)
We show that efficient coupling of lightwave is possible to an individual plasmonic nanoresonator in a hybrid plasmonic-photonic resonator structure. The proposed hybrid structure consists of a photonic microresonator strongly coupled to a plasmonic nanoresonator. The theory and simulation results show that more than 73% of the input power in the waveguide… (More)
We propose a hybrid scheme in which light is coupled into gold nanodisks from a silicon nitride waveguide or travelling wave resonator. Large field enhancements in the vicinity of the nanodisk resonator can be achieved.
Design and experimental characterization of a hybrid resonator consisting of nanolithographically fabricated gold nanoparticles integrated with a Silicon Nitride photonic microresonator is discussed. Application of the proposed structure for sensing and spectroscopy will be discussed.
We introduce on-chip interferometers in which the spatial output interference pattern is observed along a detection plane. We show that by using photonic crystals with strong dispersive properties in these devices, highly sensitive interferometers can be realized. We discuss potentials of these interferometers in spectroscopy and sensing applications using… (More)
We report on the development of high-density neural probes for distributed neuronal recording and stimulation. Our hybrid silicon-parylene probes provide high spatial resolution and incorporate a monolithically integrated flexible cable to address the challenge of stable recordings in chronic neural implants. We address a long-standing but often overlooked… (More)
The enhancement and confinement of electromagnetic radiation to nanometer scale have improved the performances and decreased the dimensions of optical sources and detectors for several applications including spectroscopy, medical applications, and quantum information. Realization of on-chip nanofocusing devices compatible with silicon photonics platform… (More)
