Tailoring plasmonic field enhancement in spatial and spectral domains
Swinburne University of Technology, Australia
Three-dimensional patterning of plasmonic nano-particles on different
substrates is demonstrated by ion-beam lithography with high 15-20 nm resolution.
Realization of an on-demand achiral and chiral modifications of nano-structures
is performed. Simulations of optical properties of the obtained
nano-architectures reveal the possibility to tailor the field enhancement both
in the spatial and spectral domains, which are foreseen to be applicable for
light harvesting and opto-mechanics at nanoscale.
Saulius Juodkazis is a Professor of nanophotonics at Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne, Australia. He received PhD in material science and experimental physics in 1997 jointly from Vilnius University, Lithuania and Lyon-I University, France. His research is focused on light-matter interactions within nano-to-micro space domain, nanophotonic applications in sensing and light harvesting, laser processing of materials using femtosecond lasers.
He is an associate editor of several journals including Optics Express (OSA – Optical Society of America); he published over 190 peer-reviewed journal papers, several book chapters, fifteen patents and patent applications. He is Fellow of SPIE (the international society for optics and photonics), program committee member of nanofabrication conferences in CLEO (OSA) and Photonics West (SPIE) conferences. He leads a team of 4 doctoral students and one post-doctoral researcher at Swinburne.
