We propose a method for producing a conical beam based on the lateral refraction of the TM(01) mode from a two-mode fiber after chemical etching of the cladding, and for controlling its radial polarization. The whole power of the guided mode is transferred to the refracted beam with low diffraction. Polarization control by a series of azimuthal detectors… (More)
A novel one dimensional photonic crystal (1DPHC) sustaining Bloch surface waves (BSWs) with a single crystal thin film lithium niobate (TFLN) as a part of a multilayer is theoretically and experimentally investigated. Properties of the dielectric multilayer platform with optical anisotropy introduced by X-cut TFLN are studied. Concept Periodic dielectric… (More)
Subwavelength plasmonic waveguides show the unique ability of strongly localizing (down to the nanoscale) and guiding light. These structures are intrinsically two-way optical communication channels, providing two opposite light-propagation directions. As a consequence, when light is coupled to these planar integrated devices directly from the top (or… (More)
In this paper, the electric resonance characteristics of narrow waist diabolo shape gold metal bar nanoantenna have been investigated. These metal nanostructures induce surface plasmon polration (SPP) and localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) leading to enhance the absorption and the scattering cross sections characteristics of the antenna.… (More)
Our aim is to transpose the polarization control by mechanical stress, usually applied to single-mode fibers, to the (TM(01), TE(01), HE(21)(ev), HE(21)(od)) annular mode family. Nevertheless, the quasi-degeneracy of these four modes makes the situation more complex than with the fundamental mode HE(11). We propose a simple device based on periodic… (More)
We report on the near- and far-field investigation of the Slow Bloch Mode associated with the point of the Brillouin zone, for an active honeycomb lattice photonic crystal, using near-field scanning optical microscopy.
We propose a method for producing and controlling a radially polarized beam based on the lateral refraction of the TM 01 mode from a fiber after chemical etching of the cladding. Two aspects are studied: (1) the quality of the refracted beam as a function of the geometry of the etched segment, (2) the method of polarization control by a series of azimuthal… (More)
