nature photonics | VOL 5 | FEBRUARY 2011 | 83 Optical antennas, analogues of microwave and radiowave antennas, are a new concept in physical optics1. They are an enabling technology for manipulating and controlling optical radiation at subwavelength scales2. Optical antennas are the subject of a growing number of scientific studies, and hold promise for enhancing the efficiency of photodetection3,4, light emission5,6, sensing7, heat transfer8,9 and spectroscopy10… CONTINUE READING
