Notre Dame Researchers Open Path to New Generation of Optical Devices

nwelding • Date: June 22, 2017

“Sub-diffraction Confinement in All-semiconductor Hyperbolic Metamaterial Resonators” was co-authored by graduate students Kaijun Feng and Galen Harden and Deborah L. Sivco, engineer-in-residence at MIRTHE+ Photonics Sensing Center, Princeton Univ.

Cameras, telescopes and microscopes are optical devices that measure and manipulate electromagnetic radiation [light]. Being able to control the light in these devices provides more information through a better “picture” of what is occurring. Specifically, controlling light on small scales could lead to improved optical sources for applications that span health, homeland security and industry.
