Nanoantennas: Design of broadband light harvesters and new applications as plasmonic sinks

We present a new design methodology for plasmonic nanocavities exhibiting a broadband light harvesting response. The broadband behavior is due to structural singularities, which via conformal transformations map into infinite planar structures allowing for broadband SPP excitation. Additionally, a new application of plasmonic nanocavities acting as sinks for the selective removal of unwanted states in active media will be introduced.
