Photon Management Assisted by Surface Waves on Photonic by Angelo Angelini

By Angelo Angelini

This booklet illustrates unique pathways to govern mild on the nanoscale through floor electromagnetic waves (here, Bloch floor waves, BSWs) on planar dielectric multilayers, sometimes called one-dimensional photonic crystals. This technique is especially important because it represents an efficient replacement to the generally exploited floor plasmon paradigm. After a quick assessment at the basics of BSWs, numerous major purposes of BSW-sustaining constructions are defined. specific attention is given to the propagation, guiding, and diffraction of BSW-coupled radiation. additional, the interplay of natural emitters with BSWs on planar and corrugated multilayers is investigated, together with fluorescence beaming in loose house. to supply larger perception into sensing functions, an illustrative instance of fluorescent microarray-based detection is gifted. The ebook is meant for scientists and researchers engaged on photon administration possibilities in fields corresponding to biosensing, optical circuitry, and lighting.
