Integrated filters for the on-chip silicon photonics platform
We investigate the properties of integrated dielectric filters for the purposes of on-chip routing of photons. We started with the use of high quality factor tunable photonic crystal nanobeam cavities and moving on to ...
Manipulating Light on Wavelength Scale
Light, at the length-scale on the order of its wavelength, does not simply behave as "light ray", but instead diffracts, scatters, and interferes with itself, as governed by Maxwell's equations. A profound understanding ...
Near-Field Optical Forces: Photonics, Plasmonics and the Casimir Effect
The coupling of macroscopic objects via the optical near-field can generate strong attractive and repulsive forces. Here, I explore the static and dynamic optomechanical interactions that take place in a geometry consisting ...
