  • Flexible membranes for nanoplasmonic applications 

    Reader-Harris, Peter (University of St Andrews, 2016-06-22) - Thesis
    Nanoplasmonics has provided a way to control light with extremely high precision, into nanoscale volumes. In many circumstances, the nanoplasmonic devices which can be realised are fabricated using processing techniques ...
  • Low insertion loss modulator based on a vertically coupled photonic crystal resonator 

    Debnath, Kapil; O'Faolain, Liam; Gardes, F Y; Thomson, D; Reed, G T; Krauss, Thomas Fraser (SPIE, 2012-01-30) - Conference item
    We experimentally demonstrate a simple but more efficient technique to modulate and multiplex multiple WDM channels. Our design is based on a bus waveguide vertically coupled to multiple Photonic Crystal (PhC) resonator, ...
  • Optical trapping: optical interferometric metrology and nanophotonics 

    Lee, Woei Ming (University of St Andrews, 2010-06-25) - Thesis
    The two main themes in this thesis are the implementation of interference methods with optically trapped particles for measurements of position and optical phase (optical interferometric metrology) and the optical manipulation ...
  • Resonantly enhanced thermal emitters based on nanophotonic structures 

    O'Regan, Bryan J. (University of St Andrews, 2015-11-30) - Thesis
    The manipulation of photons, especially the control of spontaneous emission, has become a core area of photonics research in the 21st century. One of the key challenges is the control of the broadband emission profile of ...
  • Silicon nanocavity light emitters at 1.3-1.5 µm wavelength 

    Shakoor, Abdul (University of St Andrews, 2013-06-26) - Thesis
    Silicon Photonics has been a major success story in the last decade, with many photonic devices having been successfully demonstrated. The only missing component is the light source, however, as making an efficient light ...
