B18 - Plasmonic tunnel junctions for infrared photon creation and detection

B18
Plasmonic tunnel junctions for infrared photon creation and detection

Objectives

The central goal of this project is to realize an ultra-small light source or detector for infrared photons. To this end, we pursue the construction of a resonant tunnel junction with extreme plasmonic enhancement. To achieve this goal, we utilize tunnel junctions that form in the narrow gap of an electrically contacted plasmonic nanoparticle-on-mirror (NPoM) antenna. A specifically designed hybrid inorganic/organic system (HIOS) (with suitably aligned energy levels) placed inside the gap enables a high photon extraction or detection yield.
