Computational Studies of Nano-Photonic Devices

Prof. Shanhui Fan
Ginzton Lab, Stanford University

Abstract

Nano-photonic devices represent a new frontier in the optical sciences. With the device and structural dimensions scaled down to a single wavelength scale, these devices exhibit fascinating properties that can be exploited for potential device applications. Also, the scale of these devices provide important opportunities for first-principles computation studies. In this talk, I will present examples where computational studies are leading us to new device concepts in the optical technologies.
