Efficient photonic mirrors for semiconductor nanowires

Abstract : Using a fully vectorial frequency-domain aperiodic Fourier modal method, we study nanowire metallic mirrors and their photonic performance. We show that the performance of standard quarter-wave Bragg mirrors at subwavelength diameters is surprisingly poor, while engineered metallic mirrors that incorporate a thin dielectric adlayer may offer reflectance larger than 90% even for diameters as small as lambda/5.
