Nano Rresonant Cavity Technology Devices For Nano Sensing

Nanophotonics and Biomimetics
Adventure in Research Grant

Current integrated nano-systems are inflexible due to bulky interfaces, with discrete circuit blocks thus robbing the system of portability. In this research, I propose a nano-device that could be applied to different research disciplines through performing sub task. This would be an extremely attractive concept, as it would enhance the adoption of new nanotechnologies by industry. This system will be small and readily portable and could be used in the field as well as in the laboratory for analysis purposes. This research proposal is aimed at a proof-of-concept study of utilising a novel nano resonant cavity based on photonic crystal and photonic wire technology that will eventually evolve into a monolithic nanoscale integrated ‘plug-and-play’ component for a variety of interdisciplinary systems. Applications would include bio-environmental-sensing, optical chip interconnects for a multidimensional nanophotonic-electronic integrated circuit board, light extraction unit, photon-assisted bio-medicine and imaging.
