Three dimensional antennas

A paper on optical antennas gets the cover video in the Optics Express homepage. An investigation on the near-field focusing properties of three dimensional phase antennas drew the attention of the web editors of Optics Express to the extent of illustrating their homepage with an animated explanation on the performance of the antennas.

The highlighted paper was prepared by ICFO PhD Student Alberto Curto in collaboration with PhD Student Alejandro Manjavacas and Prof. Javier García de Abajo of the Instituto de Óptica (CSIC)/Universidade de Vigo.
