Title: Plasmonic nanostructures for conversion of optical power to electrical power

Abstract

A plasmoelectric device for conversion of optical power to direct current (DC) electrical power includes a first plasmonic nanostructure having a first resonance value and a second plasmonic nanostructure having a second resonance value. The first and second plasmonic nanostructures are electrically coupled and the first plasmonic nanostructure is configured to receive irradiation at a first irradiation value and the second plasmonic nanostructure is configured to receive irradiation at a second irradiation value, to induce charge transfer between the first and second plasmonic nanostructures.
