Nanophotonic Devices – Going Beyond Conventional Approaches
October 22nd, 2019 URIEL LEVY The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel

In this talk I will describe our recent progress related to the demonstration of nanoscale optoelectronic devices consisting of dielectric and metallic nanophotonic structures. Proper design and integration of materials allow for extreme control of light with applications in imaging, photodetection, displays, precise metrology and more. Specific examples to be discussed are plasmonic enhanced infrared photodetectors based on the internal photoemission effect, the first outdoor metalens, nonlinear metasurfaces, and nonreciprocal nanoscale photonic devices. We will show six-fold enhancement in light emission from QDs coupled to hyperbolic metamaterial cavities. Finally, we will discuss some novel approaches for the fabrication of such nanoscale devices.
