Toward Nano-Photonic Devices

  • Motoichi Ohtsu


The strength of the local electromagnetic interaction between a specimen and a probe increases with increases in the optical near-field intensity. This increase allows modifications to the specimen’s surface and also nanometric processing, which leads to the creation of novel nanometric materials. Further, novel functional photonic devices are expected from the use of a resonant interaction between the optical near field and the matter, as well as using the local optical nonlinear effect.
