Abstract:

We requested equipment to advance projects funded by a regular ARO grant ARO W911NF-11-1-0447. The scientific goal is to build novel frequency agile plasmonic antennas and sensors. With increasing demand to faster and smaller electronic and photonic devices, plasmonic technology which has promising approach to control light at length scale well below the optical diffraction limit has emerged. The small length scale of plamsmonic device, however, brings serious challenges in assembling, designing, and characterizing. The objective of this proposal is to develop an integrated method for assembly and characterization of individual nanostructures, to explore new design principles for plasmonic photonic devices, and to demonstrate prototypical devices to verify the effectiveness of both theoretical simulation and experimental approaches.
