insulator

The term insulator is generally used to indicate electrical obstruction while the term dielectric is used to indicate the energy storing capacity of the material (by means of polarization).

Dielectric Di`e*lec"tric, n. [Pref. dia- + electric.] (Elec.)
Any substance or medium that transmits the electric force by
a process different from conduction, as in the phenomena of
induction; a nonconductor. separating a body electrified by
induction, from the electrifying body.

Optical Antennas: A New Technology that can Enhance Light-Matter Interactions

Antennas in the optical range will improve the efficiency of light-emitting devices.

The purpose of optical antennas is to convert the energy of free propagating radiation to localized energy, and vice versa.

Although this is similar to what radio wave and microwave antennas do, optical antennas exploit the unique properties of metal nanostructures, which behave as strongly coupled plasmas at optical frequencies.

It is hoped that optical antennas can increase the efficiency of light-matter interactions in important applications, such as light-emitting devices, photovoltaics, and spectroscopy.

optic frequency

(physics) A frequency comparable to that of electromagnetic waves in the optical region, above about 3 × 1011 hertz.
