All-dielectric nanophotonics

Rapidly growing demands for powerful informational and computational capacities require conceptually new approaches of efficient information processing. One of those approaches is based on the replacing electrons by photons as the main information carriers

The efficient manipulation of light implies simultaneous control of its electric and magnetic components, however, the magnetic response of natural materials at optical frequencies is usually weak and photonic devices operate mainly with the electric part of light wave. This problem is addressed by the all-dielectric nanophotonics – a new branch of nanophotonics that allows for manipulation of the strong, optically induced electric and magnetic Mie resonances in dielectric nanoparticles with high refractive index.
