Coupling nanoemitters to plasmonic opalic cristals ; characterization of dielectric nanopilars



The electromagnetic surrounding of an emitter can really affect its emission. A dielectric interface for example can accelerate the emission by a factor called the Purcell factor. The emitters will be deposited on top of a metalized opal in the region of high intense electric field : the interstices between the beads of the metallized opal. The strong interactions with the electric field will accelerate the emission of these emitters. In the near future, nanopilars could play the same role. Here the optical response of this structure is compared with an analytical model of a cylindrical waveguide.
