Is practicle perfect optical transmission possible?

In theory, subwavelength nanostructures should allow perfect transmission to be achieved thanks to refractive index matching. Moreover, the nanostructures could confer to the surface new functionalities such as anti-icing properties. We will in this presentation experimentally and theoretically the feasibility and intrinsic limitations of the approach. As an example, we will show how a silicon/air interface can transmit more light in the mid-IR than an air/glass interface in the visible while becoming super hydrophilic. As a perspective, the generalization of the approach to different kinds of material and spectral ranges will be discussed.

Circular dichroism and extraordinary transmission in metal films with elliptical nanohole arrays

1Sapienza University of Rome, Italy; 2University of Pavia, Italy

We theoretically study circular dichroism (CD) in hexagonal and square arrays of elliptical nanoholes etched in thin metallic layers on a glass substrate. CD resonances in transmission and in absorption spectra fall within extraordinary transmission (EOT) peaks from the holes and are associated with coupling to surface plasmon-polaritons at the interfaces with the metal. The conditions for maximizing the CD as a function of geometrical parameters are determined.

Numerical study of the optical properties of disordered metallic grooves by a one-mode analytical model

Denis Langevin1, Julien Jaeck1, Eslam El Shamy1, Riad Haïdar1,2, Patrick Bouchon1

1ONERA/DOTA, France; 2École polytechnique, France

Metallic grooves of sub-wavelength dimensions behave like Fabry-Perot nano-cavities able to resonantly enhance electromagnetic fields. In this paper, the consequences of positional disorder on the optical behavior of groove arrays are studied. We show, with a specifically developed simulation tool, that disorder leads to a redistribution of energy compared to the periodic case.

Optical properties of ultrathin Ag films: the role of porosity and morphology

Luca Ciambriello, Emanuele Cavaliere, Luca Gavioli

Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Italy

Understanding the optical response-structure and morphology relation of ultrathin optical Ag films is crucial yet not properly addressed. We present new results obtained through a novel tool calculating the effective dielectric functions employing reflectance and transmission optical data. The film structure is modelled as a multi-layer system taking into account in particular the film porosity and roughness and the data are fitted with meaningful physical quantities (roughness, scattering time, porosity). We describe the dependence on film thickness and the major phisical parameters influence on the dielectric function.

Violation of the Einstein relations in single-mode nanolasers

Andrey A Vyshnevyy

MIPT, Russian Federation

Spontaneous and stimulated emission and the Einstein relations between them lie at the core of the laser theory. While the radiative processes in the cavities are considered to be well understood, we show that, even in the weak coupling limit, many-body effects arising from correlated dynamics of the laser cavity and the gain medium's electric polarization significantly affect emission rates, hence lead to the violation of the Einstein relations.
