Huge light-enhancement by coupling a Bowtie Nano-antenna's plasmonic resonance to a photonic crystal mode.


We numerically demonstrate a drastic enhancement of the light intensity in the vicinity of the gap of Bowtie Nano-antenna (BA) through its coupling with Photonic Crystal (PC) resonator. The resulting huge energy transfer toward the BA is based on the coupling between two optical resonators (BA and PC membrane) of strongly unbalanced quality factors. Thus… (More)
