Abstract

We report on a new type of optical source, a 'light-well', which can be used as a nanoscale tuneable emitter. Optical and plasmonic radiation is generated as an electron beam passes through a channel in a periodically layered metal-dielectric nanostructure. With a lateral size of just a few hundred nanometers, and an emission intensity of ~200 W/cm2 such light-wells may be employed in nanophotonic circuits as chip-scale free-electron light sources, or in densely packed ensembles for optical memory and display applications.
