Ring Antennae: Resonant Focusing and Collimated Extraction of Luminescence

Part of the PoliTO Springer Series book series (PTSS)


In the previous chapter it has been demonstrated that a periodic linear corrugation patterned on the surface of a 1DPC can extract the BSW-CE. Due to the spatial invariance of the surface structure, such configuration does not require a specific localization of the emitter.
