Is nanotechnology a PLT sandwich?

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

2 Scopus citations


Decreasing feature sizes due to advances in nanotechnology place a premium on careful treatment of Phase, Length, and Time in optics. All three quantities are intermeshed due to morphology at the nanometer length-scale. Speculation of nanotechnology for optics as a PLT sandwich has emerged from examining the characteristics of the responses of sculptured thin films to optical pulses and beams.
