Metal Optics: the New Frontier - presentation from SPIE Photonics West 2011: Eli Yablonovitch plenary presentation

Metal Optics: the New Frontier - Eli Yablonovitch Plenary presentation from SPIE Photonics West 2011

31 January 2010, SPIE Newsroom. DOI: 10.1117/2.3201102.17
Eli Yablonovitch is at the Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at Univ of California, Berkeley, where he is the Nortel Distinguished Professor. Dr. Yablonovitch is regarded as one of the Fathers of the Photonic BandGap concept, and he coined the term "Photonic Crystal." In his photovoltaic research, Yablonovitch introduced the 4n2 light-trapping factor that is used commercially in almost all high performance solar cells.
