Dielectric leaky-wave nanoantennas for highly directional emission of light

Jens Förstner

Paderborn University

Jens Förstner obtained his master in Physics in the group of Stephan Koch at the University of Marburg/Germany in 2000. He got his PhD in the group of Andreas Knorr at the Technical University Berlin in 2004. He was postdoctoral researcher in the group of Jerry Moloney at the Optical Science Center and University of Arizona in Tucson. Since 2009 he led a junior research group on "Computational Nanophotonics", and since 2013 he is full professor at Paderborn University.


An important source of innovation in nanophotonics is the idea to scale down known radio wavetechnologies to the optical regime. One thoroughly investigated example of this approach are metallic nanoantennas which employ... [ view full abstract ]
