Directional and singular surface plasmon generation in chiral and achiral nanostructures demonstrated by leakage radiation microscopy

Aline Pham

Institut Neel

Aline Pham received her Master’s Degree in optics and nanophysics from Institut d’Optique and Grenoble Alpes University in France. She joined Aurelien Drezet’s group at Neel Institute in 2015 as a PhD student where she carries out quantum and chiral plasmonics experiments. Specifically, she investigates chiral plasmonic structures using NSOM and leakage radiation microscropy techniques.


Chiral plasmonic nanostructures have received considerable attention due to their peculiar responses such as asymmetric transmission and optical vortex generation, arising from the spin−orbit interactions of light via... [ view full abstract ]
