1. Diffraction limited focusing and directing of gap plasmons by a metal-dielectric-metal lens
Topic: Optoelectronics
Published: 8/24/2015
Authors: Brian Scott Dennis, David Czaplewski, Michael Haftel, Daniel Lopez, Girsh Blumberg, Vladimir A Aksyuk
Abstract: Passive optical elements can play key roles in photonic applications such as plasmonic integrated circuits. Here we experimentally demonstrate passive gap-plasmon focusing and directing in two-dimensions. This is accomplished using a high numerical-a ...

2. Design and modeling of an ultra-compact 2x2 nanomechanical plasmonic switch
Topic: Optoelectronics
Published: 5/4/2015
Author: Vladimir A Aksyuk
Abstract: A 2x2 Mach-Zehnder optical switch design with a footprint of 0.5 um x 2.5 um using nanomechanical gap plasmon phase modulators [1] is presented. The extremely small footprint and modest optical loss are enabled by the strong phase modulation of gap p ...

3. High-efficiency superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors fabricated from MoSi thin-films
Topic: Optoelectronics
Published: 4/10/2015
Authors: Varun Boehm Verma, Boris Korzh, Felix Bussieres, Robert D Horansky, Shellee Dawn Dyer, Adriana E Lita, Igor Vayshenker, Francesco Marsili, Matthew D. Shaw, Hugo Zbinden, Richard P Mirin, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: We demonstrate high-efficiency superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors (SNSPDs) fabricated from MoSi thin-films. We measure a maximum system detection efficiency (SDE) of 87 {+ or -} 0.5 % at 1542 nm at a temperature of 0.7 K, with a jitte ...

4. Compact Nano-Mechanical Plasmonic Phase Modulators
Topic: Optoelectronics
Published: 4/1/2015
Authors: Brian Scott Dennis, Michael Haftel, David Czaplewski, Daniel Lopez, Girsh Blumberg, Vladimir A Aksyuk
Abstract: The miniaturization of photonic devices is fundamentally limited by the index of refraction of the constituent materials if light is confined in dielectric nanostructures. By coupling electromagnetic fields to metal‰s free electrons plasmonic devices ...

5. Photonic-assisted Endoscopic Analysis of Guided W-band Pulses
Topic: Optoelectronics
Published: 8/24/2014
Authors: Jeffrey A Jargon, DongJoon Lee, JaeYong Kwon
Abstract: We present a photonic-assisted time-domain measurement technique for exploring millimeter-wave propagation through a W-band waveguide. The electric fields, guided inside a rectangular waveguide, are sampled using a sub-millimeter-scale electro-optic ...

6. Characterizing a Noninsertable Directional Device Using the NIST Uncertainty Framework
Topic: Optoelectronics
Published: 6/6/2014
Authors: Jeffrey A Jargon, Dylan F Williams, Paul D Hale, Michael D Janezic
Abstract: We characterize and provide uncertainties for a noninsertable, directional device over a frequency range of 90 to 100 GHz using the NIST Microwave Uncertainty Framework in conjunction with a commercial vector network analyzer. Our device consists of ...

7. Optical detection of radio waves through a nanomechanical transducer
Topic: Optoelectronics
Published: 3/5/2014
Authors: Jacob M Taylor, Tolga Bagci, A Simonsen, Silvan Schmid, L Villanueva, Emil Zeuthen, Anders Sorensen, Koji Usami, A Schliesser, E.S. Polzik
Abstract: Low-loss transmission and sensitive recovery of weak radio-frequency (rf) and mi- crowave signals is an ubiquitous technological challenge, crucial in fields as diverse as radio astronomy, medical imaging, navigation and communication, including th ...

8. Graphene-on-dielectric micromembrane for optoelectromechanical hybrid devices
Topic: Optoelectronics
Published: 2/7/2014
Authors: Jacob M Taylor, Silvan Schmid, Tolga Bagci, Emil Zeuthen, Patrick Herring, Maja Cassidy, C. M. Marcus, Bartolo Amato, Anja Boisen, Yong Cheol Shin, Jing Kong, Anders Sorensen, Koji Usami, E.S. Polzik
Abstract: Due to their exceptional mechanical and optical properties, dielectric silicon nitride (SiN) mi- cromembranes have become the centerpiece of many optomechanical experiments. Efficient capac- itive coupling of the membrane to an electrical system woul ...

9. Semiconductor-based detectors
Topic: Optoelectronics
Published: 12/13/2013
Authors: Sergio Cova, Massimo Ghioni, Mark A. Itzler, Joshua C Bienfang, Alessandro Restelli
Abstract: There is nowadays a widespread and growing interest in low-level light detection and imaging. This interest is driven by the need for high sensitivity in various scientific and industrial applications such as fluorescence spectroscopy in life and ma ...

10. Gallium Nitride Nanowires for On-Chip Optical Interconnects on Ex-Situ Substrates
Topic: Optoelectronics
Published: 1/16/2013
Authors: Matthew David Brubaker, Paul T Blanchard, John B. Schlager, Aric Warner Sanders, Alexana Roshko, Shannon M.M. Duff, Jason Gray, Victor M. Bright, Norman A Sanford, Kristine A Bertness
Abstract: In this letter we report on the fabrication, device characteristics, and optical coupling of a two-nanowire device comprising light-emitting diode and photoconductive GaN nanowires. Axial p-n junction GaN nanowires were grown by molecular beam epita ...
