Tailoring the Properties of Photonic Nanojets by Changing the Material and Geometry of the Concentrator
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research Letters, Vol. 48, 7-13, 2014
Abstract
Some microobjects can concentrate an incoming incident plane wave and create the socalled photonic nanojets. These highly focused emerging beams have a high intensity and can be used in applications such as microscopy, beam manipulation and imaging. In this article, it is shown that an adequate choice of geometric shape and material can lead to an improvement of the electric field enhancement capability of nanojets by a factor of 40%.
