Finite-Difference Time-Domain (FDTD) calculations are used to characterize the electric field in the vicinity of a sharp silver or gold cone with an apex diameter of 10 nm. The simulations are utilized to predict the intensity and the distribution of the locally enhanced electric field in tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (TERS). A side-by-side comparison of(More)
Hybrid organometal halide perovskites have attracted much attention these past four years as the new active layer for photovoltaic applications. Researches are now intensively focused on the stability issues of these solar cells, the process of fabrication and the design of innovative materials to produce efficient perovskite devices. In this review, we(More)
Surface modification technology has made significant advances in recent years towards the miniaturization and organization of traditional cell culture systems. However, the capability of directing transfected cells and neuronal connections to probe small structures such as spines is still under development. In the current work, interactions of different(More)
The behavior of the electromagnetic field interaction with gold nanotriangles organized in bow-tie arrays is investigated. A side-by-side comparison between the measured absorbance of the array and the modelled integrated electric field resonances confined around the gold structures is presented and discussed to explain the spectral shift between both(More)
A review on the use of photonic structures enabling a better absorption of solar radiation within solar cells is proposed. Specific geometric configurations, such as folded solar cells or fiber-based architectures, are shown to be promising solutions to reach better light absorption. Electromagnetic optimization of thin-film solar cells and the use of(More)
Depending on the minimum size of their micro/nanostructure, thin films can exhibit very different behaviors and optical properties. From optical waveguides down to artificial anisotropy, through diffractive optics and photonic crystals, the application changes when decreasing the minimum feature size. Rigorous electromagnetic theory can be used to model(More)
