Abstract

Our ability to effectively tailor and control light-matter interactions at the nano-scale may have a profound impact on several nano-photonic fields of utmost societal importance, e.g., nano-sensors and lasers, solar cells and energy harvesting, optical communication and medicine, to mention a few. In this regard, nano-antennas (NAs) are the key enablers towards a successful realization of the required light-matter interactions. As a result, significant attention has been devoted recently to the field of NAs. Their realizations fall mainly into two categories. The first category is comprised of traditional NAs which simply are the scaled down versions of their traditional microwave counterparts. The second category consists of NAs based on a wide range of plasmonic and/or all-dielectric nano-particles (NPs) supporting the excitation of different multipoles. In most cases, the involved NP sizes were electrically small, making such NAs radiate as small dipoles. However, many emerging applications are in strong need of electrically small and directive NA that may enable strong power flows in preferred directions
