• Loss compensation in a plasmonic nanoparticle array 

    Miller, Shannon Marie (2013-06-12)
    The problem of heavy material and radiative losses in plasmonic devices has held back their implementation for compact and high-speed data storage and interconnects. One of the most interesting solutions to this problem ...
  • Novel tools for ultrafast spectroscopy 

    Jarvis, Thomas William (2012-02-06)
    Exciton dynamics in semiconductor nanostructures are dominated by the effects of many-body physics. The application of coherent spectroscopic tools, such as two-dimensional Fourier transform spectroscopy (2dFTS), to the ...
  • Simulation of a plasmonic nanowire waveguide 

    Malcolm, Nathan Patrick (2009-09-03)
    In this work a Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) simulation is employed to explore local field enhancement, plasmonic coupling, and charge distribution patterns. This 3D simulation calculates the magnetic and electric ...
