Silicon's Role in Photonics Recast

Abstract:
Jonathan Spanier, a professor of materials science and engineering at Drexel, along with Bahram Nabet, a Drexel professor of electrical and computer engineering, and Linyou Cao, a Drexel graduate student in materials science and engineering, made the discovery. They explain their experimental results in terms of a building up of the incident electromagnetic field inside the tiny cross-section. While there is no inherent gain in the system, the incident light rays resonate with the nanowire cross-section at a particular combination of wavelength of light and nanowire diameter, in somewhat the same manner that a guitar string would resonate with a tuning fork.
