PDF - Doctoral Thesis


In this thesis light matter interactions in the weak coupling regime are investigated in Si-based photonic devices. At first, spectroscopic investigation of energy transfer among Er ions and Si-nanoparticles for optical amplification has been reported. Successively, light propagation in dielectric resonator and waveguides has been addressed, in particular considering photon Local Density of States modifications and the possible Purcell enhancement effect.
