Paper Abstract

Electrically-driven nanoscale light sources are imperative in the design on nanophotonic circuits and applications. We will discuss the direct excitation of waveguided modes of a metamaterial slab consisting of array of plasmonic nanoparticles using electron tunnelling effects. The large flux of hot electrons makes the tunnel junctions highly reactive, providing opportunities for designing hydrogen and oxygen sensors. Tunnel-junction based nanoscale light sources provide numerous opportunities for free space and integrated optics applications.
