Nano-Optics: New Rules for Optical Components

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments

Operating in the nano-realm offers designers a host of new opportunities. Understanding what to expect in this miniature world is key to successful nano-optic component design.

Hubert Kostal, NanoOpto Corp.

When physical structures get very small — on the order of molecular or atomic sizes with one or more dimensions on the nanoscale — their behavior and interactions with energy, including light, differ greatly from those of larger, macroscale structures. This is important for optical circuits for two reasons. First, the different physical behavior provides the optical component designer an entirely new realm of optical functions. Second, changing dimensions, shapes, spacing and materials provides almost infinite flexibility in the variation of optical functions because the realized...Read full article
