Paper Abstract

Recent important advances in subwavelength nanostructures offer extraordinary control over the properties of light. We can now manipulate the propagation, storage, and generation of light, as well as practically prescribe its matter interaction properties based on first-principles. Photonic crystals, in particular, offer the unique ability to achieve ultrahigh Q/Vm nanocavities, and the arbitrary control of dispersion characteristics to increase photon-matter interaction times. In addition, silicon photonics offer the unique opportunity towards the convergence of electronics and photonics in a monolithic silicon platform for unprecedented information processing capacity. In this talk, we will review critical advances in these arenas, as well as present our developments in fundamental and applied studies of optics in subwavelength nanostructures.
