Microfabricated Optical Probe

Inventors

Vladimir Aksyuk, Kartik Srinivasan, Thomas Michels

Patent Description Integrated photonics research and manufacturing requires a probe for in-line nondestructive optical testing of devices. Current optical probes require dedicated and large coupling areas in the photonic circuit. They cannot provide sufficient control over the degree, location and

Photonic probe for atomic force microscopy

Inventors

Marcelo Davanco, Vladimir Aksyuk

Patent Description Atomic force microscopy probes with integrated photonic optomechanical cavity readout are new and provide improved sensitivity, increased measurement speed and reduced measurement noise in a variety of research and manufacturing metrology applications. While such probes have been

Localized gap plasmon resonator

Inventors

Brian J. Roxworthy, Alexander J. Liddle, Vladimir Aksyuk

Patent Description This invention is a motion sensor, and the unique fabrication process required to build the sensor, that uses the strong sensitivity of plasmonic modes to geometrical parameters (e.g. gap size). The measurement technique is experimentally validated by detecting thermal motion of a
