TRR 142 - Quasi-bound states in the continuum for efficient second harmonic generation and spatial phase tailoring in GaAs metasurfaces (B09*)

In this project, we aim at exploiting highly efficient quasi-bound states in the continuum for optical modes in GaAs nanoresonators. The strong field confinement of these modes will be utilized to tailor the phase and emission patterns of light generated by nonlinear optical processes and to increase the efficiency of light-matter interaction in ...
