Smart windows, having electrically-controlled transmission and zero-energy consumption when maintaining a colored or colorless state, increase the energy efficiency of buildings because they offer the potential to greatly reduce the energy cost of lighting, heating and cooling. Currently, the...
Design and Fabrication of Fractal Photoconductive Terahertz Emitters and Antenna Coupled Tunnel Diode Terahertz DetectorsDownload
Improved terahertz (THz) photoconductive antennas that are able to both emit higher THz radiation power and detect lower THz radiation signal levels than the traditional THz photoconductive antennas are presented. Also, different classes of fractals are investigated to realize whether the...
This thesis focuses on the development of integrated silicon-based nanoplasmonic waveguides and devices for use in all-optical plasmonic circuitry. To this end, metal-insulator-semiconductor-insulator-metal (MISIM) and metal-insulator-semiconductor (MIS) hybrid nanoplasmonic waveguides were...
This thesis focuses on the study of the electromagnetic properties of active spinplasmonic artificial materials. Artificial materials are composites having a macroscopic electromagnetic response that arises due to electromagnetic and electronic interactions between subwavelength sized elements....
This thesis presents theoretical and experimental work on the generation and control of ultrashort electron pulses via surface plasmon (SP) waves. As such, new methods are presented to specifically control various beam parameters such as direction, kinetic energy, pulse duration, and...
This thesis presents the realization and characterization of passive and active photonic and nanoplasmonic waveguides for applications in all-optical circuitry. The key results focus on generating visible light in nanoscale silicon waveguides through nonlinear interactions and demonstrating...
