Cathodoluminescence for plasmonics: webinar

June 18, 2019

cathodoluminescence webinar plasmonicsWe are continuing our educational series of webinars, dedicated to cathodoluminescence technique and its application in different fields. Over the last few months, we have covered cathodoluminescence for geology, rare-earth materials, as well as time-resolved cathodoluminescence and lens scanning energy-momentum CL. On the 11th of July we are going to focus on yet another field, where cathodoluminescence can be successfully used: plasmonics

In the 30-minute webinar presented by our product manager and cathodoluminescence specialist Toon Coenen we are going to talk about how cathodoluminescence imaging established itself as a powerful technique for studying and analysing nanostructures and optical phenomena at the nanoscale. We will explain how cathodoluminescence can be used to retrieve optical properties with the deep-subwavelength resolution, including:

  • measuring the spectral and spatial distribution of plasmon resonances in a structure with nanoscale spatial resolution,

  • measuring the angular profile to study directionality,

  • measuring the polarization of emission

We will also give a few examples of studying plasmonic structures with cathodoluminescence. Our speaker will briefly cover the basics of cathodoluminescence, but if you would like to learn more about this technique in the meantime, make sure to check our previous webinars dedicated to cathodoluminescence basics, cathodoluminescence for geological applications, nanophotonics and more.

If you are not able to join the webinar live, no worries: you will receive the recording of the webinars right after it finishes. Register below or on the main registration page of the webinar.
