Description

Nanoantennas have been used in a wide range of applications in sensing, spectroscopy, and imaging-in general, the antennas can enhance physical phenomena such as the local electric field or concentrate light in a certain direction. We have fabricated an array of 80 plasmonic Yagi-Uda nanoantennas on the cladding of an optical fiber and, by doing this, we show that the signal reaching the fast detector can be increased by a factor of 5 dB. The experiment demonstrates that plasmonic directive...[Show more]
