Shape optimization of nanoantennas (2012-present) One aim of this project is the application of shape optimization on nanoantannas and nanooptical circuits to enhance its efficiency. By experiments one can see that the shape of a nanoantenna influences its efficiency. |
Details Optical nanoantennas are attached to waveguides to couple a laser beam into a nanooptical circuit. By experiments one can see that the shape of a nanoantenna influences its efficiency. Efficiency in this particular case is the ratio between energy of the laser beam and gained energy in the waveguide. Light is described by electric and magnetic fields, and their propagation is modelled by Maxwell's equation. If time-harmonic fields are assumed, Maxwell's equation is reduced to its time-harmonic representation. |
