Infrared Antennas and Resonant Structures
by Javier Alda and Glenn Boreman
English | 2017 | ISBN: 1510613587 | 168 Pages | PDF | 30 MB

Infrared antennas and resonant structures are examples of the advances achieved during the last two decades based on the electromagnetic interaction of light and a wise combination of material and geometry. These interesting devices can be applied to a variety of fields in optics and photonics, where infrared detection can now overcome the limitations of previous technologies.

This book starts with the basics of electromagnetism applicable to the interaction of light with metallic structures having a size comparable to the wavelength, then discusses the special behavior of metals; how to model, design, and validate through simulation of the proposed geometries; how to fabricate the most promising device designs; and various characterization techniques. Then follows a description of the two main types of devices developed by the authors: those producing an electric signal (antenna-coupled devices) and those changing the parameters of the light incident on the resonant elements (resonant optics). The book concludes by discussing current and potential challenges in new research and future devices.
