Plasmonic wavelength splitter based on a large-area dielectric grating and white light illumination.

An optical process by which transmission wavelengths can be divided selectively by changing a resonance condition of surface plasmons (SPs) is demonstrated and it is shown that multiple wavelengths are transmitted into different directions simultaneously by using a wedge-shaped white light.

This work exploits plasmon-modulated photoluminescence (PMPL) as an effective optical source to drive directional nanoantennas and experimentally realizes two technically challenging theoretical proposals, namely, an optical nanospectrometer based on Yagi-Uda nanoantenna and tunable broadband directional emission from log-periodic nanoantENNas.

Plasmonic nanoantennas: fundamentals and their use in controlling the radiative properties of nanoemitters.

Plasmonic resonances in nanoantennas overcome constraints on the resolution to which an object can be imaged, as well as the size of the transverse cross section of efficient guiding structures to the wavelength dimension, allowing unprecedented control of light-matter interactions within subwavelength volumes.
