Nano- Optics: Changing the Rules For Optical System Design





The commercial introduction of breakthrough, wafer-based, nano-fabrication techniques allows the creation of a new class of optical components – nano-optics – with physical structures far smaller than the wavelength of light. The fine scale surface structures of nano-optics interact with light according to novel physical principles, yielding new arrangements of optical processing functions with greater density, more robust performance, and greater levels of integration when compared to many existing technologies. The revolutionarily small dimensions of nano-optics allow multi-layer integration, yielding complex optical components “on a chip” with a broad range of applications, and create fundamentally new approaches to optical system design.
