NAME

Optical materials and structures

DESCRIPTION

Optical materials and structures are substances used to manipulate the flow of light. This can include reflecting, absorbing, focusing or splitting an optical beam. The efficiency of a specific material at each task is strongly wavelength dependent, thus a full understanding of the interaction between light and matter is vital.

JSON-LD is the canonical representation for SciGraph data.

The efficiency of a specific material at each task is strongly wavelength dependent, thus a full understanding of the interaction between light and matter is vital.

138 skos:definition Nanocavities are nanometre-scale structures for trapping light. Concentrating light into such a small volume increases the strength of light–matter interactions, and can alter the spontaneous emission from a light source inside the cavity. Cavities can be created using photonic crystals or nanowires, for example.

153 skos:definition Nanoparticles are particles that exist on a nanometre scale (i.e., below 100 nm in at least one dimension). They can possess physical properties such as uniformity, conductance or special optical properties that make them desirable in materials science and biology.

164 skos:definition Nanowires are structures with a width and depth of a few nanometres or less, but a much longer length. Electrons in these materials are free to travel along the wire, but their motion in the other two directions is governed by quantum mechanics, radically altering the properties of the material.

173 skos:definition Optics and photonics is the study of the fundamental properties of light and harnessing them in practical applications. Optics and photonics covers the entire electromagnetic spectrum from high-energy gamma rays and X-rays, through the optical regime of ultraviolet, visible, and infrared light, to long-wavelength microwave and radio waves.

188 skos:definition Photonic crystals are periodic optical structures that can control the flow of light. Multiple reflections from surfaces separated by a distance similar to the wavelength prevent an optical beam from propagating through the crystal. Photonic crystal devices can therefore force light around sharp bands or even trap it entirely.

Silicon is prevalent in photodetectors, solar cells in particular. However, its indirect band structure means that it is not a natural creator of light.
