Plasmonic nano-antennas for next-generation photon sources
Grant number: DP110100221 | Funding period: 2011 - 2015
Extending concepts from standard radio-frequency antenna technology down to the nanoscale will open up new applications in fields from biotechnology to telecommunications. This project will embed a light emitting particle in a nanostructured metallic device to produce an ultrabright, directional single-photon source.
