We report that the shape, orientation, edge geometry, and thickness of chemical vapor deposition graphene domains can be controlled by the crystallographic orientations of Cu substrates. Under low-pressure conditions, single-layer graphene domains align with zigzag edges parallel to a single <101> direction on Cu(111) and Cu(101), while bilayer domains(More)
The record superconducting transition temperature (T(c)) for the iron-based high-temperature superconductors (Fe-HTS) has long been 56 K. Recently, in single-layer FeSe films grown on SrTiO3 substrates, indications of a new record of 65 K have been reported. Using in situ photoemission measurements, we substantiate the presence of spin density waves (SDWs)(More)
We report the first study of nanoscale integrated photonic devices constructed with semiconductor-insulator-metal strip (SIMS) waveguides for use at telecom wavelengths. These waveguides support hybrid plasmonic modes transmitting through a 5-nm thick insulating region with a normalized intensity of 200-300 μm(-2). Their fundamental mode, unique(More)
We describe a rapid, simple, room-temperature technique for the production of large-scale metallic thin films with tunable plasmonic properties assembled from size-selected silver nanoplates (SNPs). We outline the properties of a series of ultrathin monolayer metallic films (8-20 nm) self-assembled on glass substrates in which the localized surface plasmon(More)
We report an electrophoretic deposition method for the fabrication of gold nanoparticle (GNP) thin films as sensitive surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) substrates. In this method, GNP sol, synthesized by a seed-mediated growth approach, and indium tin oxide (ITO) glass substrates were utilized as an electrophoretic solution and electrodes,(More)
Optical gyroscopes with high sensitivity are important rotation sensors for inertial navigation systems. Here, we present the concept of integrated resonant optical gyroscope constructed by active long-range surface plasmon-polariton (LRSPP) waveguide resonator. In this gyroscope, LRSPP waveguide doped gain medium is pumped to compensate the propagation(More)
Metal nanostructures show great applications in chemical sensing, biomedical detection, optical-thermal therapy, and optical communications because of their electromagnetic field enhancement properties at the visible and the near-field infrared wavelengths. Such strong optical field enhancement induced by the localized surface plasmon resonance is dependent(More)
Wide wavelength ranges of light localization and scattering characteristics can be attributed to shape-dependent longitude surface plasmon resonance in complicated nanostructures. We have studied this phenomenon by spectroscopic measurement and a three-dimensional numerical simulation, for the first time, on the high-density branched silver nanowires and(More)
Integrated optical ring resonators are essential elemental components for integrated optical circuits. An ultrasmall thermo-optical microring resonator with two bus waveguide-configuration based on surface plasmon polariton waveguide is theoretically analyzed. The thermo-optical coefficient, the temperature-dependent amplitude attenuation coefficient and(More)
UNLABELLED BACKGROUND Noble metallic nanoparticles have prominent optical local-field enhancement and light trapping properties in the visible light region resulting from surface plasmon resonances. RESULTS We investigate the optical spectral properties and the surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy of two-dimensional distinctive continuous ultrathin gold(More)
