Gap plasmon resonance in electromagnetically-actuated nanomechanical silicon nitride strings

Nicolas Cazier

Institute of Sensor and Actuator Systems, TU Wien, Vienna, Austria

Dr. Nicolas Cazier has a Master of Engineering Degree from the "Ecole Centrale de Lille" in France and did a PhD Thesis on nonlinear effects in silicon photonics crystals cavities at the Institute of Fundamental Electronics (IEF) from Paris-Sud University. He is now a postdoctoral researcher on nano-mechanical resonators at the Institute of Sensor and Actuation Systems from the Technical University of Vienna (TU Wien). Before that, he was a postdoctoral researcher on plasmonic nano-antennas for the CNRS at the Laboratoire Interdisciplinaire Carnot de Bourgogne (ICB).

Abstract

We present a new kind of electromagnetically-actuated nanoplasmomechanical string resonator. This nanomechanical resonator is made of two gold covered silicon nitride (SiN) strings separated by a 100 nm wide gap. These strings... [ view full abstract ]
