Broadside High Index Dielectric Beam Routing

  title={Broadside High Index Dielectric Beam Routing},
  author={Arnab Dewanjee and Stewart Aitchison and Mohammad Mojahedi},
  journal={arXiv: Optics},
We propose a technique to control the beam direction of a dielectric optical micro-prism structure by properly designing its geometry. We show that by selectively choosing the slope of a high index micro prism, the direction of the radiated beam from the tip can be controlled in the broadside direction of the prism structure. We propose an easy fabrication method to integrate such broadside beam routers on a Si platform. We also propose a demonstrate a technique to build the beam router on an…

Controlling the optical near field of nanoantennas with spatial phase-shaped beams.

A novel approach, based on sub-wavelength spatial phase variations at the focus of high-order beams, to reconfigure the optical near field distribution near plasmonic nanostructures to selectively switch on and off hot-spots sites within a complex antenna architecture is reported.

Sub-wavelength diffraction-free imaging with low-loss metal-dielectric multilayers

We demonstrate numerically the diffraction-free propagation of sub-wavelength sized optical beams through simple elements built of metal-dielectric multilayers. The proposed metamaterial consists of

Plasmonics beyond the diffraction limit

Recent years have seen a rapid expansion of research into nanophotonics based on surface plasmon–polaritons. These electromagnetic waves propagate along metal–dielectric interfaces and can be guided

Subwavelength confinement in an integrated metal slot waveguide on silicon.

We demonstrate propagation losses of less than 0.8 dB/microm in a metal slot waveguide on silicon with a predicted confinement substantially below the optical wavelength (approximately 1.55 microm).

Silicon photonics packaging with lateral fiber coupling to apodized grating coupler embedded circuit.

Recent advances at the intersection of plasmonics and photovoltaics are surveyed and an outlook on the future of solar cells based on these principles is offered.

Optical Yagi-Uda nanoantennas

Abstract Conventional antennas, which are widely employed to transmit radio and TV signals, can be used at optical frequencies as long as they are shrunk to nanometer-size dimensions. Optical

Nanometre-scale germanium photodetector enhanced by a near-infrared dipole antenna

A critical challenge for the convergence of optics and electronics is that the micrometre scale of optics is significantly larger than the nanometre scale of modern electronic devices. In the
