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 light-matter interaction based on first-principles. Photonic crystals, in particular, offer the unique ability for arbitrary control of dispersion as well as ultrahigh quality factor (Q) and modal volume (Vm) nanocavities. In this talk, we will present, to our knowledge, the first near-field experimental observations of near-infrared subwavelength imaging in negative refraction photonic crystals, as well as discuss our efforts in enhanced nonlinearities in photonic crystal nanocavities.
