Optical resonances in multilayer structures
Maksimovic, Milan (2008) Optical resonances in multilayer structures. thesis.
|Abstract:||Theoretical research in optics may be divided in two distinctive but well connected
general directions. The first deals with developing new or improving existing mathematical
models to describe relevant physics. The second aims to predict new
phenomena or applications using established models and techniques. This thesis
touches both directions through the study of resonances in optical multilayers.
Optical multilayers are structures periodic in their properties in one direction.
They have been longstanding subject of investigation. Nonetheless, both fundamental
and applied research in multilayer optics is still important due to the relevance
of multilayer structures for optical systems. The introduction of specific
defects in otherwise periodic configurations enables effective tailoring of the optical
transmission properties. Equally important, novel materials give additional
degrees of freedom for the implementation of desired functionalities as well as the
exploration of new physical phenomena. Besides, knowledge gained from an investigation
of multilayer structures may serve as a basis for the interpretation and
the qualitative understanding of higher dimensional optical structures.
