Optical Plasmonic Nano-Antennas Array for Energy Harvesting Applications

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Optical nanoantennas have been of great interestrecently due to their ability to support a highly efficient, localizedsurface plasmon resonance and produce significantly enhancedand highly confined electromagnetic fields. The Yaginanoantenna, an optical analog of the well-established radiofrequencyYagi antenna, stands out by its efficient unidirectionallight emission and enhancement. In this paper, an investigationon a novel optical plasmonic nanoantennas array for energyharvesting application is proposed. The study of a novel Yaginanorectennas array, by optimizing its geometrical parameters, isreported. All the simulations are carried out by using the CSTStudio Suite 2018 software, based on finite element analysis.
