TLD film deformation forming optical liquid lattices (blue) due to surface tension effects caused by interference of surface optical modes (red). Click for more info.
Schematic presentation of TLD film deformation forming optical liquid lattices (blue) due to surface tension effects triggered by interference of surface optical modes (red). (a) 2-D plasmonic liquid lattice formed by interference of SPPs. (b), (c) Suspended and supported photonic liquid lattice, respectively, formed by interference of photonic slab WG modes. Gain can be introduced into the suspended structure (c) either to the liquid or to the dielectric supporting membrane. The lateral dimensions of the liquid slots, which are bounded by solid dielectric walls (not shown) are dy and dz. (d)–(f) The corresponding 1-D optical liquid lattices in a liquid slot of length dz induced by pairs of (d) counterpropagating SPPs or (e) and (f) slab WG modes. Credit: The Authors.
