DIELECTRIC NANO-PHOTONICS-II: CAN DIELECTRIC NANOPHOTONICS SERVE AS AN ALTERNATE TO NANOPLASMONICS?
Nano-optics is usually associated with plasmonic structures made of noble metals to enhance the electromagnetic field on the nanoscale. However, the high level of Joule losses associated with the noble metals has always been a challenge limiting the efficiency of optical devices. In this talk, I will discuss can resonant optical excitation of high index dielectric nanoparticles offer alternate opportunities by reducing dissipative losses and large resonant enhancement of both electric and magnetic near-fields.
