We present computational design and investigation of nano-optical systems involving nanowires and well-designed nano-couplers to effectively transmit electromagnetic power in nanometer scales. Different nano-couplers, which consist of optimal arrangements of nano-cubes, are carefully designed by considering various scenarios, e.g., nanowire lines with sharp corners and junctions. An efficient combination of genetic algorithms and the multilevel fast multipole algorithm is used to find suitable configurations of nano-cubes that provide desired electromagnetic responses. Combinations of multiple nano-couplers and nanowires allow us to build larger nano-optical systems with different shapes, inputs, and outputs. Initial results presented in this paper demonstrate the feasibility of complex networks based on nanowires and nano-couplers.

We present optimization and design of nano-optical couplers involving dielectric nanorods. Using tens of elements, optimal array configurations are found to produce alternative responses that can be digitized. For realistic simulations, the couplers are modeled as three-dimensional structures and analyzed via surface integral equations and the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA). Initial results are presented demonstrate the feasibility of compact but effective couplers with desired responses.

This thesis includes design, simulation, realization and measurement of a four-element quasi- Yagi antenna array printed on a ceramic substrate for X-band radar applications. The microstrip array antenna is designed using four quasi-Yagi antennas in a linear configuration and is printed on Alumina 99.6% substrate made by Coorstek Corporation. The antenna can fit into small areas because of compact structure due to the use of high dielectric constant substrates. In addition, the use of alumina ceramic substr...
