Recent advances in nanotechnologies have prompted the need for tools to accurately and non-invasively manipulate individual nano-objects. Among the possible strategies, optical forces have been predicted to provide researchers with nano-optical tweezers capable of trapping a specimen and moving it in three dimensions. In practice, however, the comb...

Amplifying local electromagnetic fields by engineering optical interactions between individual constituents of an optical antenna is considered fundamental for efficient nonlinear wavelength conversion in nanometer-scale devices. In contrast to this general statement we show that high field enhancement does not necessarily lead to an optimized nonl...
Article
Optical antennas are elementary units used to direct optical radiation to the nanoscale. Here we demonstrate an active control over individual antenna performances by an external electrical trigger. We find that by an in-plane command of an anisotropic load medium, the electromagnetic interaction between individual elements constituting an optical...
Article
We introduce strongly-coupled optical gap antennas to interface optical radiation with current-carrying electrons at the nanoscale. The transducer relies on the nonlinear optical and electrical properties of an optical gap antenna operating in the tunneling regime. We discuss the underlying physical mechanisms controlling the conversion and demonst...

The levitation of optical scatterers provides a new means to develop free-space volumetric displays. The principle is to illuminate a levitating particle displaced at high velocity in three dimensions (3D) to create images based on the persistence of vision (POV). Light scattered by the particle can be observed all around the volumetric display and...

Anticounterfeiting technologies rely on visual effects that are specific to particular structures and concealed to the unwary observer. Plasmonic nanostructures are one solution to these two requirements and beside colored effects, the possibility to design covert images in a particular polarization state of light is particularly appealing. The gen...

The need for point-of-care (POC) devices capable of early detecting diseases and monitoring their status, out of a lab environment, has stimulated the development of compact biosensing configurations. While Localized Surface Plasmon Resonance (LSPR) sensing integrated into a state-of-the-art microfluidic chip stands as a promising approach to meet...

Noble metal nanoparticles (NPs) supporting localized surface plasmon resonances are widely used in the context of biotechnology as optical and absorption contrast agents with great potential applicability to both diagnostics and less invasive therapies. In this framework, it is crucial to have access to simple and reliable microscopy techniques to...

Growth of laser damage on High Reflection (HR) thin film coatings is investigated at the wavelength of 1.030µm in the sub-picosecond regime. An experimental laser damage setup in a pump / probe configuration is used to study the growth behavior of engineered damage sites as well as laser damage sites. Results demonstrate that engineered sites and l...

Purpose: Perovskites are greatly used nowadays in many technological applications because of their high permittivity, more specifically in the form of aqueous solutions, for MRI dielectric shimming. In this study, full dielectric characterizations of highly concentrated CaTiO3 /BaTiO3 water mixtures were carried out and new permittivity maxima was...
Article
Dielectric Mie resonators have attracted a great deal of attention over the past few years thanks to their remarkable capabilities in manipulating light propagation at the nanoscale. However, the practical implementation of technological products is still elusive. One of the important limits is the absence of a high-performing material and a fabric...
Conference Paper
Based on an experimental system that can be used for simultaneous laser damage testing and time-resolved acquisition of intensity and phase images, we describe different experiments related to the study of laser damage process in the sub-picosecond regime. We report firstly on quantitative measurement of the Kerr effect in a fused silica substrate...

Plasmonic antennas have a profound impact on nanophotonics as they provide efficient means to manipulate light and enhance light-matter interactions at the nanoscale. However, the large absorption losses found in metals can severely limit the plasmonic applications in the visible spectral range. Here, we demonstrate the effectiveness of an alternat...

Non-invasive and ultra accurate optical manipulation of nanometer objects has recently gained a growing interest as a powerful enabling tool in nanotechnology and biophysics. In this context, Self-Induced Back-Action (SIBA) trapping in nano-optical cavities has shown a unique potential for trapping and manipulating nanometer-sized objects under low...

Visualization and manipulation of nanoscale matter is one of the main and current challenges in nanosciences. To this aim, different techniques have been recently developed to non-invasively trap and manipulate nano-specimens, like nanoparticles or molecules. However, operating in air or vacuum still remains very challenging since most approaches a...

Nanoscale electronics and photonics are among the most promising research areas providing functional nano-components for data transfer and signal processing. By adopting metal-based optical antennas as a disruptive technological vehicle, we demonstrate that these two device-generating technologies can be interfaced to create an electronically-drive...

Accurate delivery of small targets in high vacuum is a pivotal task in many branches of science and technology. Beyond the different strategies developed for atoms, proteins, macroscopic clusters and pellets, the manipulation of neutral particles over macroscopic distances still poses a formidable challenge. Here we report a novel approach based on...

Label-free biosensing based on metallic nanoparticles supporting Localized Surface Plasmon Resonances (LSPR) has recently received a growing interest. Besides its competitive sensitivity when compared to the SPR approach based on extended metal films, LSPR biosensing features a high-end miniaturization potential and a significant reduction of the i...

We demonstrate here the realization of an integrated, electrically driven, source of surface plasmon polaritons. Light-emitting individual single-walled carbon nanotube field effect transistors were fabricated in a plasmonic-ready platform. The devices were operated at ambient conditions to act as an electroluminescence source localized near the co...

In this work, we demonstrate propagating surface plasmon polariton (SPP) coupled photoluminescence (PL) excitation of single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT). SPPs were launched at a few micrometers from individually marked SWNT, and plasmon-coupled PL was recorded to determine the efficiency of this remote in-plane addressing scheme. The efficiency d...

In this paper, we experimentally show the effect of waveguide discontinuity on the propagation of the surface plasmon in metal stripes and tapered terminations. Dual-plane leakage microscopy and near-field microscopy were performed on Au stripes with varied widths to image the surface plasmon intensity distribution in real and reciprocal spaces. We...

We report on the excitation of propagating surface plasmon polaritons in thin metal films by a single emitter. Upon excitation in the visible regime, individual semiconducting single-walled carbon nanotubes are shown to act as directional near-infrared point dipole sources launching propagating surface plasmons mainly along the direction of the nan...

The experimental observation of a one-dimensional evanescent wave supported by a 90◦ metal edge is reported. Through a measurement of in-plane momenta, we clearly demonstrate the dimensional character of this surface wave and show that it is non-radiative in the superstrate. Excitation conditions, lateral extension and polarization properties of th...

We present a mechanism to control the scattering properties of individual optical nanoantennas by applying an external electric field. We find that by electrically tuning an anisotropic load medium the scattered intensity becomes voltage-dependent. We also demonstrate that the scattering diagram of the antenna can be externally adjusted. This on-de...
