Associated scholarship(s):13/03947-9 - Nanoantennas for coupling and communication between photonic devices, BE.EP.DR


This project deals with the use of nanoantennas with different configurations and materials, involving activities of simulation, fabrication and characterization, towards efficient solutions for challenging problems related to coupling and also, communication, in the wireless technology sense; between integrated optic devices, including the plasmonic ones. In this way, proposals of new types of antennas will be assessed; particular emphasis will be given to the so-called Dielectric Resonant Antennas, used in microwaves, in which my research group has extensive experience in theoretical and practical terms.
