Abstract

We propose to develop semiconductor-metallic hybrid devices by placing metallic nanoparticles in the vincinity of nanowires, as pictured in Fig. 56.1. Acting as plasmonic nanoantennas they strongly couple to the local electromagnetic field and allow us to control their emission properties, e.g. enhancement of radiative decay rate and tunability/modification of the radiation diagram [3, 4]. We present here results and on-going experiments in the parallel studies of such nanowires and nanoantennas.
