From Event: SPIE Optical Engineering + Applications, 2017
We investigated a nanoantenna integrated thermomechanical infrared pixel based on bi-material nanobeam. Three bilayer configurations are numerically studied and optimized towards maximum thermomechanical deflection. The integrated optical nanoantennae are geometrically tuned to reach the highest optical absorption at 6 μm. Thermal time constants and fundamental noise equivalent powers of the three bilayer configurations are also calculated. We also discuss the potential implementation of our detector as an infrared polarimetric sensor.
Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
