Unique nanostructure produces novel 'plasmonic halos'

Using the geometric and material properties of a unique nanostructure, Boston College researchers have uncovered a novel photonic effect where surface plasmons interact with light to form "plasmonic halos" of selectable output ...

Using single quantum dots to probe nanowires

Modern telecommunications happens because of fast electrons and fast photons. Can it get better? Can Moore's law—the doubling of computing power ever 18 months or so—be sustained? Can the compactness (nm-scale components) ...

Simpler fabrication of nanogaps

Plasmons, which are density waves of electrons, are of great interest to pure and applied scientists because of their novel properties, and because of their application to sensing and photonic technologies. These applications ...
