Journal Article
Murshidy, M. M., Adawi, A. M., Fry, P. W., & Lidzey, D. G. (2010). A one-dimensional photonic-crystal nanocavity incorporating a fluorescent molecular dye. Applied physics letters, 97(15), 153303. doi:10.1063/1.3497647

We model the optical properties of a SiN based one-dimensional waveguide photonic crystal nanocavity with three tapered air holes as a function of the photonic crystal mirror fill factor using finite difference time domain calculations. We show that... Read More about A one-dimensional photonic-crystal nanocavity incorporating a fluorescent molecular dye.

Transmission properties of plasmonic metamaterial quantum cascade lasers (2010)
Journal Article
Austin, D., Mullin, N., Bismuto, A., Luxmoore, I., Adawi, A. M., Revin, D. G., …Wilson, L. R. (2010). Transmission properties of plasmonic metamaterial quantum cascade lasers. IEEE Photonics Technology Letters, 22(16), 1217-1219. doi:10.1109/LPT.2010.2052595

We report the results of transmission experiments performed on hybridized plasmonic metamaterial quantum cascade lasers. This device was formed by etching an array of split ring resonators (SRRs) onto the gold coated facet of a laser. Broadband midin...

An optical nanocavity incorporating a fluorescent organic dye having a high quality factor (2010)
Journal Article
Adawi, A. M., Fry, P. W., Lidzey, D. G., & Murshidy, M. M. (2010). An optical nanocavity incorporating a fluorescent organic dye having a high quality factor. ACS Nano, 4(6), (3039-3044). doi:10.1021/nn1001479. ISSN 1936-0851

We have fabricated an L3 optical nanocavity operating at visible wavelengths that is coated with a thin-film of a fluorescent molecular-dye. The cavity was directly fabricated into a pre-etched, free-standing silicon-nitride (SIN) membrane and had a...

The optical properties of hybrid organic-inorganic L3 nanocavities (2010)
Journal Article
Murshidy, M. M., Adawi, A. M., Fry, P. W., Whittaker, D. M., & Lidzey, D. G. (2010). The optical properties of hybrid organic-inorganic L3 nanocavities. Journal of the Optical Society of America B, 27(2), 215-221. doi:10.1364/JOSAB.27.000215

We report the fabrication of L3 nanocavities defined into a free-standing silicon nitride (SiN) membrane coated with a thin (10 nm) film of fluorescent red-emitting conjugated polymer. We find that structures both with and without the conjugated poly... Read More about The optical properties of hybrid organic-inorganic L3 nanocavities.
