Abstract

Nanophotonics has the potential to provide novel devices and systems with unique functions based on optical near-field interactions. Here we experimentally demonstrate, for the first time, what we call a quadrupole-dipole transform achieved by optical near-field interactions between engineered nanostructures. We describe its principles, the nanostructure design, fabrication of one- and two-layer gold nanostructures, an experimental demonstration, and optical characterization and analysis.
