Design, Fabrication and 3D Volumetric Characterization Criteria for Plasmonic Bullseye Structures

  title={Design, Fabrication and 3D Volumetric Characterization Criteria for Plasmonic Bullseye Structures},
  author={Amir Djalalian-Assl},
  journal={arXiv: Optics},
In this report, certain claims regarding the design criteria and characterizations of plasmonic bullseye (BE) structures are investigated. Does the matching of the grating's periodicity to the wavelength of surface waves results in a strong collimated beam along the optical axis of the device? What are the requirements for such devices if they are set to enhance the radiative decay rate of a quantum emitter? These questions are answered by proposing and modelling a new bullseye structure… 



Quantum cascade lasers with integrated plasmonic antenna-array collimators.

We demonstrated in simulations and experiments that by defining a properly designed two-dimensional metallic aperture-grating structure on the facet of quantum cascade lasers, a small beam divergence

A side-illuminated plasmonic planar lens.

A 2D model of a similar planar lens but with side-illumination enables the potential integration of lens on chip and the simulation results demonstrate that such structures can work as good diffractive elements.

Interaction between optical nano-objects at metallo-dielectric interfaces

The light interactions between subwavelength apertures in metallic screens represent a basic diffraction phenomenon that has been studied for a long time. Initial reports have promoted the surface

Mechanisms for extraordinary optical transmission through bull's eye structures.

This work analyzes both experimentally and theoretically the physical mechanisms that determine the optical transmission through deep sub-wavelength bull's eye structures (concentric annular grooves surrounding a circular hole) and finds that each groove behaves almost independently, acting as an optical cavity that couples to incident radiation, and reflecting the surface plasmons radiated by the other side of the same cavity.

Tunable surface plasmon wave plates.

This Letter proposes and applies a technique and shows both numerically and experimentally that shifts in (1,0) and (0,1) modes in response to changes in the refractive index of the surrounding dielectric provide a mechanism for realization of a miniaturized tunable quarter-wave plate that operates in an extraordinary optical transmission mode with a high throughput and a near unity state of circularly polarized light.

Plasmonic antennas for directional sorting of fluorescence emission.

This work presents full directional control of the fluorescence emission from molecules in water solution by an optical antenna made of a nanoaperture surrounded by a periodic set of shallow grooves in a gold film and provides a new approach for high-sensitivity screening of molecular species in solution.
