  • Optical eigenmodes for illumination & imaging 

    Kosmeier, Sebastian (University of St Andrews, 2013-06-26) - Thesis
    This thesis exploits so called “Optical Eigenmodes” (OEi) in the focal plane of an optical system. The concept of OEi is introduced and the OEi operator approach is outlined, for which quadratic measures of the light field ...
  • Optical forces near a nanoantenna 

    Ploschner, Martin; Mazilu, Michael; Krauss, Thomas F.; Dholakia, Kishan (2010-02-04) - Journal article
    The Maxwell stress tensor method is used to calculate the optical forces acting upon a glass nanosphere in the proximity of optically excited gold nanoantenna structures. The dependence of optical forces over a full range ...
