Engineering of a Nanometric Optical System Based on Optical Near-Field Interactions for Macro-Scale Applications
The operating principle of our nanometric optical system is based on its hierarchical structure. This hierarchy is due to the characteristic behavior of optical near-fields induced by nanometric interactions between light and materials. In order to exploit such nanometric phenomena in macro-scale applications, it is essential to design and engineer each component of the system so that the optical near-field behavior can be extracted as macro-scale optical responses. Here we introduce the basic concept of our nanometric optical system, and we describe some demonstrations of macro-scale applications whose operation is based on this concept.
