Nanophotonics: strong light-matter interaction
- Speaker: Prof. Park, Hong-Gyu (Korea Univ)
- Date: Tuesday December 6, 2016
In this talk, I want to present research progress in my group, including current-injection nanolasers, plasmonic lasers/tweezers, and nanowire photovoltaics/sensors. First, electrically driven photonic crystal lasers  and graphene-contact microdisk lasers  will be introduced. Second, I will talk about an optically pumped silver-nanopan plasmonic laser with a subwavelength mode volume  and low-power nano-optical vortex trapping using plasmonic resonance in gold diabolo nanoantennas . Finally, I will present single-crystalline silicon nanowire photovoltaic devices . Synthesis control of nanowires for enhanced light absorption  and a new nanowire platform for one-dimensional bioprobes  will also be introduced. I believe that our progress in demonstrating subwavelength nanophotonic devices represents an important step toward fast all-optical processing in an ultra-compact photonic integrated circuit.
