Artificial dielectric waveguides from semiconductor-embedded polymers

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


Novel dielectric properties are achieved when semiconductor crystallites are embedded in polymeric, passive host material. Upon illumination which photon energy above the semiconductor band-gap, a dielectric constant change will be observed for a below band-gap, propagating photon.
