Paper Abstract

Optical nanoantennas are analogs of radio-frequency antennas for light. In this work, we first describe how the optical nanoantennas are similar to their RF counterparts in some ways and differ from them in some other aspects. We also focus on the use of split ring resonator based metamaterials, which are essentially optical antennas with a C-shaped compact geometry. We also discuss how they can be used in sensing applications for the infrared detection of a monolayer of molecules with zeptomoles per resonator sensitivity.
