Abstract

A waveform synthesis technique is introduced and applied to the femtosecond pulse excitation of plasmonic nanoantennas for temporal and spatial energy concentration control. The waveform synthesis process is based on phase and polarization shaping and an understanding of the electromagnetic response of the nanostructure. Linear and radial nano-dipole arrays are analyzed before the log-periodic toothed nanoantenna is investigated as a nanostructure capable of combining the benefits of the nano-dipole arrays. The consistent superiority of the log-periodic toothed nanoantenna is established by comparing its electromagnetic response to that of the radial nano-dipole array using a variety of synthesized excitation waveforms.
