is one of the most used materials in integrated photonic
however there is still a lot of possibilities to be explored in terms of its
applications. In this project, the
student will be able to fabricate and characterize silicon pillars in a
configuration where the effective refractive index becomes zero. Such system
could present exotic phenomena with
great possibilities for integrated platforms. Some theoretical analysis using the software COMSOL will also be required.
This project is hosted by “Metamaterials group” at DTU Fotonik, more information is available at
· Goals of the project
By the end of the project the student shall be able to independently perform fabrication and characterization techniques, simulations using the software COMSOL and understand the effective medium theory for metamaterials design.
· Skills/knowledge acquired through the project
Fabrication and characterization techniques, COMSOL and MATLAB software for theoretical analysis.
Basic knowledge of electromagnetism/optics.
