- A polymer-based functional pattern on one-dimensional photonic crystals for photon sorting of fluorescence radiationMirko Ballarini
Department of Applied Sciences and Technology, Politecnico di Torino, Corso Duca degli Abruzzi 24, 10129 Torino, Italy
Opt Express 20:6703-11. 2012..This working principle can be advantageously extended to a multi-step nanometric relief structure for self-referencing biosensing or frequency-multiplexed fluorescence detection...
- High resolution capabilities of all-silica cantilevered probes for near-field optical microscopyEmiliano Descrovi
Materials and Microsystems Laboratory xLab, Politecnico di Torino, C so Duca Degli Abruzzi 24, 10129 Torino, Italy
J Nanosci Nanotechnol 9:6460-4. 2009..This work further demonstrates that the use of completely transparent, metal-coated cantilevers greatly simplify the light injection into the probe and the fabrication process consequently...
- Experimental observation of optical bandgaps for surface electromagnetic waves in a periodically corrugated one-dimensional silicon nitride photonic crystalEmiliano Descrovi
Laboratorio Materiali e Microsistemi chiLab, Dipartimento di Fisica, Politecnico di Torino, Torino, Italy
Opt Lett 33:243-5. 2008..The proper design of the structure allows the two folded branches to lie beyond the light line in a wide spectral range, thus doubling the density of modes available for SEWs and avoiding light scattering...
