Directional Optical Antennas, Wafer-Scale Metasurfaces, and Single Molecule Surface-Enhanced Raman Scattering
Within the field of optics, one of the topics being currently investigated with considerable interest is that of plasmonics, which refers to the use of surface plasmons on metallic nanostructures to manipulate light. It ...
Femtosecond laser direct writing of 3D metallic structures and 2D graphite
This thesis explores a novel methodology to fabricate three dimensional (3D) metal-dielectric structures, and two dimensional (2D) graphite layers for emerging metamaterials and graphene applications. The investigations ...
Plasmonics for surface-enhanced Raman scattering: from classical to quantum
Metallic nanostructures that employ localized surface plasmon resonances to capture or radiate electromagnetic waves at optical frequencies are termed "plasmonic optical antennas". These structures enhance light-matter ...
