Plasmonic Flat-Lens BES Helps Focus Light Into Nanoscale Colloidal Quantum Dot Photodetector

Plasmonic Flat-Lens BES Helps Focus Light Into Nanoscale Colloidal Quantum Dot Photodetector

High-sensitivity photodetection is at the heart of many optoelectronic applications, including spectroscopy, imaging, surveillance, remote sensing and medical diagnostics. Achieving the highest possible sensitivity for a given photodetector technology requires the development of ultra-small-footprint detectors, as the noise sources scale with the volume of the semiconductor. This must be accomplished without sacrificing neither the optically active area of the detector nor its responsivity. [More]
