Using local fields to tailor hybrid quantum dot-metal nanoparticle systems: Connecting the dots

Garnett W. Bryant; Ryan D. Artuso; Aitzol Garcia-Etxarri; Javier Aizpurua CLEO: 2011 - Laser Science to Photonic Applications, 2011

We study systems of metal nanoparticles (MNP) coupled with semiconducting quantum dots (SQD). Hybrid behavior can be tailored by the MNP shape and the exciton resonance of SQDs which determine the local fields.

  • High Temperature Contacts to Chemically Vapour Deposited Diamond FilmsReliability Issues

    Refractory metals (Ti, Mo, Wand Ta) with precious metal overlayers (Au and Pt) were used to form ohmic contacts to polycrystalline boron doped chemically vapour deposited diamond films. Refractory metals afford high resistance to thermal and environmenal stresses. In addition, many refractory metals show a chemical affinity for carbon, resulting in the formation of a metal-carbide reaction layer with reduced Schottky barrier height at the contact interface. Low resistance ohmic contacts can be formed by heavy boron doping of the diamond film in the contact region. The viability and reliability of various refractory metal contact schemes were assessed to determine their upper operating temperatures and life expectancies in hostile environments. Reverse engineering of the contacts and detailed material analysis revealed likely failure mechanisms. It was found that Mo/Au gave the highest degree of thermal stability, while Ti gave the lowest contact resistance. The contact resistance was strongly dependent on the doping level of the diamond film

  • Stimulator Paradigm: Artificial Retina

    Implanted telemetry devices used for medical implants are affected by their surrounding environment since tissues are frequency-dependent lossy dielectric materials. This chapter focuses on the considerations and methodologies for the design of high-performance and small-size antennas appropriate for intraocular implants. The multicoil approach for inductive coupled telemetry offers high power transfer efficiency for biomedical telemetry. Having multiple control parameters to tune efficiency, voltage gain, and bandwidth, multicoil telemetry systems are in general more flexible than dual-coil systems. The artificial retina is undergoing clinical medical trials in several countries, and it can be available to patients worldwide. The implementation of flexible small antennas using liquid metals holds the promise of better fitting implantable conformal devices, which is important in the proximity of delicate biological structures such as the eye's retina and smaller incisions for implant surgery.

  • EM Topology for Interference Control

    Interference control for large systems is complicated because of the physical and electrical complexity of the systems. This chapter discusses electromagnetic topology and its relation to interference control. It covers the various aspects involved in partitioning of systems by nested enclosures and topological concepts to preserve shielding integrity. The chapter introduces the concept of nested enclosures, and shows the proper techniques of passing grounds and other conductors through the shield. It also discusses the effects of apertures on shielding effectiveness and shows how shielding effectiveness can be degraded by fields diffusing through conductive surfaces. Apertures are usually required for access such as windows and doors, ventilation, and a host of other facility requirements. These apertures must be designed so that access is provided without compromising the electromagnetic compatibility of the system. The chapter includes a design example to calculate the voltage induced in a metallic loop placed on a spherical shield of different metals.
