and nanoplasmonics have matured to transform from the laboratory-based
playfields for probing fundamental science phenomena to applications
domains of robust sensing and on-chip information processing. This
transformation amplifies the need for accurate design and robust
fine-tuning of various elements of optical nanocircuits, including
nanoscale (de)multiplexers, resonant filters, signal plitters, embedded
coherent sources and amplifiers, etc. Optical microcavities such as
whispering-gallery-mode resonators, photonic crystal nanocavities, and
plasmonic nanoresonators are essential elements of complex meso-scale
optical chip nanocircuitry. I have proposed and demonstrated various
new photonic, plasmonic and hybrid elements with novel circuit
functionalities, which were designed by using semi-analytical integral
equations techniques. These include: hybrid optoplasmonic superlenses
for robust spectral and spatial multiplexing with sub-wavelength
resolution, novel-shape microcavities and coupled-cavity photonic
molecules with tailored modal and emission spectra enabling on-chip
directional light sources, and novel-type optical waveguides with
unusual transport characteristics.
