Semiconductor nanostructures are at the heart of modern-day electronic devices and systems. Due to their high refractive index, they also provide a myriad of opportunities to manipulate light. When properly sized and shaped, they can support strong optical resonances that boost light-matter interaction over bulk materials and enable their use in controlling the flow of light at the nanoscale. In this presentation, I will discuss the use of individual, resonant nanostructures and dense arrays thereof (metafilms) in a variety of optoelectronic devices and illustrate how the performance of these devices can be improved by engineering the constituent nanostructure, size, shape, and/or spacing.

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.
