COMSOL Multiphysics has been widely used to model the near and far-field electromagnetics (specifically, transmission and reflection spectra) of gold and silver nanoantenna arrays. We use a moving 3D mesh, thus preserving the DOF number and simply morphing the structure of the mesh to accommodate the moving boundary. The electromagnetics model consist of four multiphysics models, two ...

Detecting light emitted by fluorescent molecules with resolution down to single photon is an important problem in various fields of sciences and applications, such as solid-state physics, quantum information processing and medicine. The detection probability can be improved via enhancement of excitation and emission. Enhancement both of these processes can be reached by localized surface plasmon ...

K. Liang [1], A. Dodabalapur [1], D. Sharma [1],
[1] Microelectronics Research Center, University of Texas, Austin, TX, USA

An organic-inorganic dual-channel sensor makes a strong chemical gas sensor because this device design combines the high chemical sensitivities and selectivity of organic semiconductors [1-4] with the superior electrical performance and convenient integration of silicon semiconductors. As shown in the device schematic in Figure 1, the organic channel is the chemically-active material and is ...

Surface Plasmon Polaritons Photonic Device Design and All-optical Modulation

J. Chen
Peking University, Beijing, China

Surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs), which are confined along metal-dielectric interfaces, have attracted great interest in the area of ultracompact photonic circuits due to their strong field confinement and enhancement. COMSOL Multiphysics is an efficient and powerful software package to simulate the characteristics of SPPs. In recent years, we did some works on SPPs in experiments as well as ...

Optoelectronic Transducer with an Optical Fiber Transmission Used for Current Measurement

J. Golebiowski [1],
[1] Dept. of Semiconductor and Optoelectronics Devices, Lodz University of Technology, Lodz, Poland

The transducer's construction used for current measurement in medium voltage power lines for current values kA is shown. The transducer involves magnetic circuit with a gap in which a MEMS structure with a movable cantilever is placed. The beam is made of silicon with a NiFe layer. The beam with the ferromagnetic layer is deflected due to effecting magnetic field. The deflection of the beam is ...

Adaptive optics control using liquid filled membrane lens is based on the principle of deflection of polymeric membrane. Controlled deflection in membrane leads to controlled focal length. This enhances the focus tuning ability of the system at the same time make optical system compact and economical. The adjustment of fluid pressure helps to toggle between different field of view at the same ...

It is well-known that metal nanoparticles (NPs) excited at the plasmon frequency not only exhibit peculiar optical properties (e.g., a peak in the extinction spectrum, an enhanced electromagnetic near-filed) but also heat up [1]. This phenomenon is highly investigated for medical applications, but it can be exploited also for the realization of optical devices. In our study we use COMSOL ...

Introduction: Single-photon detectors capable of ensuring high fidelity read-out of quantum information delivered via photons of specific polarization are crucial in QIP [1]. Our previous studies have shown that different types of one dimensional plasmonic structures enhance the absorptance of p-polarized light [2, 3]. The purpose of present study was to optimize four different types of ...

We describe the modeling of microdisk lasers displaying vertical emission. The devices are THz quantum cascade lasers with metallic gratings fabricated along the circumference.  The emission properties of the fabricated devices are well explained by the model, good mode control is obtained, and the collected power from a patterned device is increased 50 times with respect to unpatterned ...

Imaging Infrared Spectrometer (IIRS) is a Hyperspectral optical imaging instrument which measures the spectra of a scene in high resolution within spectral bands covering Near Infrared (NIR) to Mid Infrared (MIR) regions. Radiation entering the spectrometer assembly governs the temperature of different internal parts and hence plays an important role in determining the desired spectral ...
