Experimental observation of Berreman modes in an uniaxial anisotropic nanoporous alumina film on aluminum substrate.

In this Letter, we demonstrate experimentally and verify numerically the excitation of Berreman modes that propagate in a dielectric film of uniaxial anisotropic nanoporous alumina grown on an

Enhanced beam shifts mediated by Bound States in Continuum

The interaction of light beams with resonant structures has led to the development of various optical platforms for sensing, particle manipulation, and strong light-matter interaction. In the current



Transition from Optical Bound States in the Continuum to Leaky Resonances: Role of Substrate and Roughness

Optical bound states in the continuum (BIC) are localized states with energy lying above the light line and having infinite lifetime. Any losses taking place in real systems result in transformation

A Semi-Classical View on Epsilon-Near-Zero Resonant Tunneling Modes in Metal/Insulator/Metal Nanocavities.

This work elucidates the role of MIM cavities as photonic analogues to tunnel diodes and opens new perspectives for metamaterials with designed ENZ response, and applies the quantum mechanical approach to asymmetric MIM superabsorbers and uses it for configuring broadly tunable refractive index sensors.

Characterization of Berreman modes in metal/dielectric and multilayers

The study of Berreman modes, well known in dielectric layers deposited on metallic substrates, is extended in this paper to metal/dielectric multilayers. Infra-red reflectance measurements were

Second Harmonic Generation from Phononic Epsilon-Near-Zero Berreman Modes in Ultrathin Polar Crystal Films

Immense optical field enhancement was predicted to occur for the Berreman mode in ultrathin films at frequencies in the vicinity of epsilon-near-zero (ENZ). Here, we report the first experimental

One-dimensional photonic bound states in the continuum

In 1985 Fridriech and Wintgen proposed a mechanism for bound states in the continuum based on full destructive interference of two resonances which can be easily applied to the two- and

Trapping mid-infrared rays in a lossy film with the Berreman mode, epsilon near zero mode, and magnetic polaritons.

Triple mechanisms were employed to trap mid-infrared (mid-IR) rays within a semi-transparent SiO(2) film sandwiched between gold gratings and a gold substrate using an LC (inductor-capacitor) circuit model considering the role transition of SiO (2)Film.

Berreman Embedded Eigenstates for Narrow-Band Absorption and Thermal Emission

Embedded eigenstates are nonradiative modes of an open structure with momentum compatible with radiation, yet characterized by unboundedly large Q-factors. Traditionally, these states originate from

Bound States in the Continuum in double layer structures

With a tunable double-layer photonic crystal slab, it is demonstrated that the occurrence of tunable bound states in the continuum is dependent on the spacing between two slabs, and the Drude lossless multilayer stack model is analyzed.

Ferrell–Berreman Modes in Plasmonic Epsilon-near-Zero Media

We observe unique absorption resonances in silver/silica multilayer-based epsilon-near-zero (ENZ) metamaterials that are related to radiative bulk plasmon-polariton states of thin-films originally

Optical defect mode with tunable Q factor in a one-dimensional anisotropic photonic crystal

We consider a one-dimensional photonic crystal composed of alternating layers of isotropic and anisotropic dielectric materials. Such a system has different band structures for different
