- Integration of photonic and silver nanowire plasmonic waveguidesAnna L Pyayt
Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Washington, Seattle, Washington 98105, USA
Nat Nanotechnol 3:660-5. 2008..We theoretically predict and experimentally demonstrate coupling of light into multiple nanowires from the same waveguide, and also demonstrate control over the degree of coupling by changing the light polarization...
- Nanoengineered optical resonance sensor for composite material refractive-index measurementsAnna L Pyayt
Hewlett Packard Laboratories, 1501 Page Mill Road, M S 1123, Palo Alto, California 94304, USA
Appl Opt 48:2613-8. 2009..The sensing depth of the device was measured to be 1 mum, the largest reported in the literature as far as we know, with a quality factor of 500. We demonstrate two applications...
- Field-induced guiding optical devices made from electro-optic polymersAnna Pyayt
Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Washington, Seattle, Washington 98195, USA
Appl Opt 49:892-6. 2010..We theoretically predict and experimentally demonstrate FIG in EO polymers. We also propose the idea of new class of devices--multifunctional optical devices that can completely change their functionality on the fly...
