Optical waveguides take a fashionable position in photonics simply because they may be able to seize and to move mild successfully among some extent of excitation and some extent of detection. furthermore, waveguides enable the administration of the various basic homes of sunshine and make allowance hugely managed interplay with different optical platforms. hence waveguides are ubiquitous in telecommunications, sensing, spectroscopy, gentle assets, and excessive energy gentle supply. Nanostructured and subwavelength waveguides have extra merits; they can confine mild at a size scale under the diffraction restrict and increase or suppress light-matter interplay, in addition to deal with basic houses of sunshine corresponding to velocity and path of power and section propagation.

This booklet offers semi-analytical idea and useful functions of a big variety of subwavelength and nanostructured optical waveguides and fibers working in a variety of areas of the electromagnetic spectrum together with seen, close to and mid-IR and THz. a number of approximate, whereas hugely designated analytical expressions are derived that describe quite a few modal houses of the planar and round isotropic, anisotropic, and metamaterial waveguides and fibers, in addition to floor waves propagating on planar, and round interfaces. various evidently happening and synthetic fabrics also are thought of corresponding to dielectrics, metals, polar fabrics, anisotropic all-dielectric and metal-dielectric metamaterials.

Contents are equipped round 4 significant themes:

  • Guidance homes of subwavelength waveguides and fibers made from homogeneous, commonly anisotropic materials
  • Guidance houses of nanostructured waveguides and fibers utilizing either distinctive geometry modelling and powerful medium approximation
  • Development of the powerful medium approximations for numerous 1D and 2nd nanostructured fabrics and extension of those approximations to shorter wavelengths
  • Practical functions of subwavelength and nanostructured waveguides and fibers 

Nanostructured Subwavelengths and Waveguides is exclusive in that it collects in one position an intensive variety of analytical ideas that are derived in quite a few limits for lots of essentially vital and renowned waveguide and fiber geometries and materials.
