Prediction and Optimization of Surface-Enhanced Raman Scattering Geometries using COMSOL Multiphysics

I. Knorr, K. Christou, J. Meinertz, A. Selle, J. Ihlemann, and G. Marowsky
Laser-Laboratorium Göttingen e.V., Germany

Raman spectroscopy is a commonly used tool in biodiagnostics and sensor technology. Surface-enhanced Raman scattering provides high signal enhancements especially at nanostructured metallic surfaces. In this paper the electromagnetic Raman enhancement from different metallic ... Read More

Simulation of the Destruction Effects in CMOS-Devices caused by Impact of Fast Transient Electromagnetic Pulses

M. Rohe, S. Korte, and M. Koch
Institute for the Basics of Electrical Engineering and Measurement Science, Leibniz Universität Hannover, Germany

In this paper will be presented how an electronic system and its components will respond in case of an impact of an external electromagnetic pulse (EMP). In the first instance the coupling process of transient electromagnetic pulses into electronic systems will be shown. Out of that the ... Read More

Photonic/Plasmonic Structures from Metallic Nanoparticles in a Glass Matrix

O. Kiriyenko, W. Hergert, S. Wackerow, M. Beleites, and H. Graener
Inst. für Physik, Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg, Germany

Glass containing nanoparticles is a promising material for various photonic applications due to the unique optical properties mainly resulting from the strong surface plasmon resonance (SPR) of the silver nanoparticles. The characteristics of the resonance can be modified by varying ... Read More

Resonances in Tapered Double-Port TEM Waveguides

J. Kaerst
HAWK, Fachhochschule Hildesheim/Holzminden/Göttingen, Germany

In this paper resonances in tapered double-port TEM waveguides are used as benchmark for simulations. FEM simulations with COMSOL Multiphysics® and simulations using generalised telegraphist's equations with MATLAB® are compared to ananalytical method capable of calculating the ... Read More

Plasmonic Properties of Bimetal Nanoshell Cylinders and Spheres

K. Ehrhold[1], S. Christiansen[1,2], and U. Gösele[1]
[1]Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics, Halle, Germany,
[2]Institute of Photonic Technology, Jena, Germany

Plasmonics is a new branch of the fascinating field of photonics and develops concepts to quench light beyond the diffraction limit and enhance electromagnetic fields. These enhancements occur in metals as localized surface plasmon polaritons (LSP) a coupling of the surface density ... Read More
