We study the Bloch surface wave based nano-thin 2D optical components. The 2D elements are fabricated on the dielectric multilayer platform which sustains the Bloch surface waves. Such a platform is considered as a novel foundation for planar integrated optics. We exploit the total internal reflection configuration to achieve the phase matching condition for BSW excitation. Because of the evanescent behavior of the BSW, we use a scanning near field optical microscope to characterize the near-field properties of in-plane components. The 2D optical components include Disk resonators and Bessel-like beams.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
