Nanostructured materials are one of the leading areas in photonics currently. These structures offer almost limitless possibilities in the manipulation of light. Using two different semi-analytical simulation methods, I show a few of the possible properties that these nanostructures possess, including polarization rotation and coupling with electronics.
