At SDU Nano Optics, we utilize the strong interaction of light with nanostructured components to conduct research within the fields of quantum plasmonics and optical metasurfaces, where the accurate description of the systems requires a simultaneous knowledge of the distribution of the electromagnetic field at both the nano- and micrometer scale, which makes it a computationally demanding task. The calculations performed on ABACUS 2.0 are all depending on the finite element approach (FEA) implemented in the commercial software Comsol Multiphysics. Based on the simulation results, we have demonstrated various optical functionalities, such as focusing, beam deflection, integrated single-photon source and surface plasmon polariton couplers.
