Gennaro SD, Li Y, Maier SA, Oulton RFet al., 2018, Double blind ultrafast pulse characterization by mixed frequency generation in a gold antenna, ACS Photonics

© 2018 American Chemical Society. Ultrafast pulse characterization requires the analysis of correlation functions generated by frequency mixing of optical pulses in a nonlinear medium. In this work, we use a gold optical nanoantenna to generate simultaneously Four Wave Mixing and Sum Frequency Generation across the tuning range of a Ti: Sapphire and Optical Parametric Oscillator (OPO) system. Since metal nanoparticles create remarkably strong nonlinear responses for their size without the need for phase matching, this allows us to simultaneously characterize the unknown OPO pulse and its pump pulse using a single spectrogram. The nonlinear mixing is efficient enough to retrieve pulses with energies in the picojoule range.

© 2017 IEEE. The performance of hybrid photovoltaic-thermal systems can be improved using PV cells that are specially designed to generate both electricity and useful heat with maximum efficiency. Present systems, however, use standard PV cells that are only optimized for electrical performance. In this work, we have developed two cell-level components that will improve the thermal efficiency of PV-T collectors, with minimal loss of electrical efficiency. These are a spectrally-selective low- emissivity coating to reduce radiative thermal losses, and a nanotextured rear reflector to improve absorption of the near- infrared part of the solar spectrum for heat generation.

© 2017 IEEE. We show that the radiation-hardness of space solar cells can be significantly improved by employing nanophotonic light trapping. Two light-trapping structures are investigated in this work. In the first, an array of Al nanoparticles is embedded within the anti-reflection coating of a GaInP/InGaAs/Ge solar cell. A combined experimental and simulation study shows that this structure is unlikely to lead to an improvement in radiation hardness. In the second, a diffractive structure is positioned between the middle cell and the bottom cell. Computational results, obtained using an experimentally validated electro-optical simulation tool, show that a properly designed light-trapping structure in this position can lead to a relative 10% improvement in the middle-cell photocurrent at end-of-life.

© 2018 Optical Society of America. In the search for alternative plasmonic materials, SrMoO3 has recently been identified as possessing a number of desirable optical properties. Owing to the requirement for many plasmonic devices to operate at elevated temperatures however, it is essential to characterize the degradation of these properties upon heating. Here, SrMoO3 thin films are annealed in air at temperatures ranging from 75-500° C. Characterizations by AFM, XRD, and spectroscopic ellipsometry after each anneal identify a loss of metallic behaviour after annealing at 500° C, together with the underlying mechanism. Moreover, it is shown that by annealing the films in nitrogen following deposition, an additional crystalline phase of SrMoO4is induced at the film's surface, which suppresses oxidation at elevated temperatures.

© 2018 American Chemical Society. Chemical sensing methods based on surface polaritonic resonances stem from their intense near fields and resultant sensitivity to changes in local refractive index. Polar dielectric crystals (e.g. SiC, hBN) support surface phonon polaritons (SPhPs) from the mid-infrared to terahertz range with mode volumes and quality factors exceeding the best case scenario attained by plasmonic counterparts, making them strong candidates for resonant surface-enhanced infrared spectroscopy (SEIRA). We report on the behaviour of SPhP resonances of SiC nanopillars following the incorporation of sub- and nanometric coatings of Al2O3and ZrO2obtained by atomic layer deposition. Concurrent anomalous red and blue-shifts of SPhP resonances were observed upon deposition of sub-nanometric Al2O3films, with shift direction dictated by the mode position relative to the ordinary longitudinal optic (LO) phonon of Al2O3. These concurrent shifts, which are attributed to coupling to the Berreman mode of the Al2O3layer, persist for thicker films and are correctly predicted by numerical calculations employing the measured Al2O3permittivity. Deposition of ZrO2, whose phonon resonances are detuned from the SPhPs, also led to anomalous blue-shifts of transverse and longitudinal SPhP resonances around 900 cm-1for films up to ≈ 1.5 nm, reversing to the canonical red-shift for thicker layers. These anomalous shifts were not reproduced numerically using the measured ZrO2permittivity and suggest the existence of a localized surface state, which when modelled as a simple Lorentz oscillator, provide semi-quantitative agreement with experimental results. In addition, predicted shifts for thicker ZrO2layers may thus provide a tool for real-time monitoring of ultrathin film growth.
