Design, fabrication and characterization of three-dimensional chiral photonic crystals

Thiel, Michael

Abstract:
In this thesis, we have investigated an exciting subclass of photonic nanostructures: Chiral three-dimensional photonic crystals. We have fabricated several high-quality structures by using direct laser writing and have characterized them by transmission experiments and numerical calculations. This material class shows a high potential for applications because of intense response to circularly polarized light.
