Title: Room-temperature quantum noise limited spectrometry and methods of the same

Abstract

According to one embodiment, a method of forming a plasmonic condensing lens for room temperature quantum noise limited (QNL) infrared (IR) spectrometry includes: forming a silicon cone on a substrate; coating the silicon cone with a highly reflective material; and modifying the silicon cone using focused ion beam (FIB) modification to permit transmittance of light through the silicon cone.
