Extraordinary optical transmission through sub-wavelength hole arrays
The desire to use and control photons in a manner analogous to the control of electrons in solids has inspired great interest in such topics as the localization of light, microcavity quantum
Physical Properties of Carbon Nanotubes
Eventually, you will certainly discover a further experience and success by spending more cash. yet when? reach you put up with that you require to acquire those every needs in the manner of having
Surface plasmon subwavelength optics
By altering the structure of a metal's surface, the properties of surface plasmons—in particular their interaction with light—can be tailored, which could lead to miniaturized photonic circuits with length scales that are much smaller than those currently achieved.
Exceptionally high Young's modulus observed for individual carbon nanotubes
CARBON nanotubes are predicted to have interesting mechanical properties—in particular, high stiffness and axial strength—as a result of their seamless cylindrical graphitic structure1–5. Their
Young's modulus of single-walled nanotubes
We estimate the stiffness of single-walled carbon nanotubes by observing their freestanding roomtemperature vibrations in a transmission electron microscope. The nanotube dimensions and vibration
Beaming Light from a Subwavelength Aperture
A periodic texture on the exit side of a single aperture in a metal film is created and, when combined with enhanced transmission, suggests that a wide range of photonic applications is possible.
Light passing through subwavelength apertures
This review provides a perspective on the recent developments in the transmission of light through subwavelength apertures in metal films. The main focus is on the phenomenon of extraordinary optical
Electrical conductivity of individual carbon nanotubes
THE interest in carbon nanotubes has been greatly stimulated by theoretical predictions that their electronic properties are strongly modulated by small structural variations1–8. In particular, the
Surface plasmons enhance optical transmission through subwavelength holes
Optically thick metal films perforated with a periodic array of subwavelength holes show exceptional transmission properties. The zero-order transmission spectra exhibit well-defined maxima and
Light in tiny holes
The presence of tiny holes in an opaque metal film leads to a wide variety of unexpected optical properties such as strongly enhanced transmission of light through the holes and wavelength filtering, which are now known to be due to the interaction of the light with electronic resonances in the surface of the metal film.
