Title (EN) NANOWIRES AND NANORIBBONS AS SUBWAVELENGTH OPTICAL WAVEGUIDES AND THEIR USE AS COMPONENTS IN PHOTONIC CIRCUITS AND DEVICES
(FR) NANOFILS ET NANORUBANS FAISANT OFFICE DE GUIDES D'ONDES OPTIQUES DE SOUS-LONGUEUR D'ONDE ET LEUR UTILISATION EN TANT QUE COMPOSANTS DANS DES CIRCUITS ET DES DISPOSITIFS PHOTONIQUES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Nanoribbons 40 and nanowires 38 having diameters less than the wavelength of light, as shown for example in Fig. 7B, are used in the formation of optical circuits and devices. Such nano structures function as subwavelength optical waveguides which form a fundamental building block for optical integration. The extraordinary length, flexibility and strength of these structures enable their manipulation on surfaces, including the precise positioning and optical linking of nanoribbon/wire waveguides 40, 38 and other nanoribbon/wire elements to form optical networks and devices. In addition, such structures provide for waveguiding in liquids, enabling them to further be used in other applications such as optical probes and sensors.
(FR)L'invention concerne des nanorubans et des nanofils de diamètres inférieurs à la longueur d'onde de la lumière, qui sont utilisés dans la formation et le fonctionnement de circuits et de dispositifs optiques. Ces nanostructures fonctionnent en tant que guides d'ondes optiques de sous-longueur d'onde qui forment un bloc de construction fondamental pour l'intégration optique. La longueur, la souplesse et la résistance extraordinaires desdites structures permettent d'assurer la manipulation de ces dernières sur des surfaces, notamment le positionnement précis et la liaison optique des guides d'ondes de type nanorubans/nanofils et d'autres éléments de type nanorubans/nanofils afin que soient formés des réseaux et des dispositifs optiques. En outre, lesdites structures assurent le guidage d'ondes dans des liquides, ce qui leur permet d'être également utilisées dans d'autres applications de type sondes et capteurs optiques.
