  journal={Journal of Optics},
In this paper we present an analytical solution for the eigenmodes and corresponding electric fields of a composite system made of a nanorod in the vicinity of a plasmonic semi-infinite metallic system. To be specific, we choose Silver as the material for both the nanorod and the semi-infinite metal. The system is composed of two sub-systems with different symmetries: the rod has polar symmetry, while the interface has a rectangular one. Using a boundary integral method, proposed by Eyges, we… Expand


Polarizability of nanowires at surfaces: exact solution for general geometry.
This work derives an exact semi-analytical solution of the electrostatic polarizability of a general geometry consisting of two segments forming a cylinder that can be arbitrarily buried in a substrate using bipolar coordinates, cosine-, and sine-transformations. Expand
Guiding modes of semi-infinite nanowire and their dispersion character
Conventionally, the optical properties of finite semiconductor nanowires have been understood and explained in terms of an infinite nanowire. This work describes completely different photonic modesExpand
Controlled-reflectance surfaces with film-coupled colloidal nanoantennas
It is shown that the film-coupled nanocubes provide a reflectance spectrum that can be tailored by varying the geometry (the size of the cubes and/or the thickness of the spacer) and can be controlled at scales out of reach of lithographic approaches that are otherwise required to manipulate matter on the nanoscale.

Planar Photonics with Metasurfaces
Progress in the optics of metasurfaces is reviewed and promising applications for surface-confined planar photonics components are discussed and the studies of new, low-loss, tunable plasmonic materials—such as transparent conducting oxides and intermetallics—that can be used as building blocks for metAsurfaces will complement the exploration of smart designs and advanced switching capabilities.

Novel formulation of nonlocal electrostatics.
This work proposes a novel formulation allowing for numerical solutions for the nontrivial molecular geometries arising in the applications mentioned before, based on the introduction of a secondary field psi, which acts as the potential for the rotation free part of the dielectric displacement field D.
