Sub-wavelength photonics and Nano-Objects

Photonique sub-longueur d'onde et nano-objets

Challenges: Advanced concepts for light manipulation (at all wavelengths).
 
2.1 Single Nano-Object, optical, electrical, and optoelectronic properties

  • Nanoparticles (colloidal solutions, thin layers, supracrystals)
  • Semiconductor nanowires
  • Nano-antennas, nanogaps, quantum plasmonics [recouvrement éventuel avec 1.1 Quantum Simulations (perspectives)]
  • Subwavelength combination of nano-antennas [recouvrement éventuel avec 2.2 Ultrathin absorbing metamaterials]
  • Simulation and new theoretical approaches.

2.2 Metamaterials and meta-surface

  • Metamaterials for transformation optics
  • Ultrathin absorbing metamaterials
  • Passive and active metasurfaces for antenna and reflectors
  • Cloaking
  • Active electromagnetic windows for aeronautics
  • Dielectric metasurfaces for microscopy applications
  • Dark mode metasurfaces
  • Metasurfaces for microwave, THz and optics applications

2.3 Hybrid nano-materials

  • Metamaterials for photonics applications
  • Parity-Time symmetry nanophotonics
  • Direct nanoimprint of hybrid inorganic/organic materials

2.4 Integrated plasmonics

  • Integrated optical tweezers
  • Integrated magneto-optical devices (isolators…)
  • Accelerator on a chip
  • Integrated distributed holographic sources
  • Tamm plasmon devices (quantum light sources and lasers)
  • Metasurfaces on SOI for silicon photonic devices
  • Acousto-plasmonics
