Resonant Spectra Of Metal Nanotoroids Of Various Sizes, Huong Quynh Tran

Electrical Engineering Undergraduate Honors Theses

Nowadays, the manipulation of light by using metallic nanostructures has wide applications in photonics, optoelectronics and energy conversion. Along with other universities all over the world, the University of Arkansas is researching on nano-antennas’ design, fabrication and applications. Current research in Dr. El-Shenawee’s Terahertz Imaging and Spectroscopy Computational Electromagnetics Group, has computationally investigated the behaviors of plasmonic nanostructures by using the commercial finite element electromagnetic solver Ansys® HFSS. This work reproduced the previous work of spectral absorption enhancement of infinite and finite arrays of silver and gold nanotoroids with sizes of the inner radii: 13nm – 21nm, while outer radius ...
