Scientists develop ultra fast method of changing fundamental property of light

  Researchers from the Reactive Plasmonics team at King’s College London have developed a new method for rapidly changing the polarisation of light, one of its fundamental properties. The research, published in Nature Photonics, could lead to much faster data transfer and advance research into nano-materials. A light wave undulates in different ways – known as its […]

Orientation-Dependent Exciton-Plasmon Coupling in Embedded Organic/Metal Nanowire Heterostructures

   Organic/metal nanowire heterostructures for the study of orientation dependent exciton-plasmon coupling. (A) Numerically simulated |E| 2 distribution of SPPs at the end of a 200-nm-diameter and 6 μm-long AgNW, where SPPs are launched by a dipole oriented along three coordinate axes x, y, and z, respectively. The dipole is positioned at the middle of […]

Is metal a friend or foe?

Is metal a friend or foe?

A long-standing question debated among the nanophotonics community is whether size matters and helps to reduce the threshold ofmicrometre- and submicrometre-sized lasers, and whether the presence of metal interfacing the gain medium harms or improves the laser performance. In a work published in Nature Communications, Ren- Min Ma and colleagues1 address this issue through a […]

research on noble metal nanoparticles has always remained interesting because of their optical and electronic properties. Gold nanoparticles (AuNPs), in particular, have been intensively studied for their fascinating localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) peak in the visible region of electromagnetic spectrum. The tunable nature of LSPR of AuNPs leads to a large number of applications […]

Nano aluminium offers fuel cells on demand – just add water

The accidental discovery of a novel aluminium alloy that reacts with water in a highly unusual way may be the first step to reviving the struggling hydrogen economy. It could offer a convenient and portable source of hydrogen for fuel cells and other applications, potentially transforming the energy market and providing an alternative to batteries and […]

Hybrid graphene–quantum dot phototransistors with ultrahigh gain

Graphene is an attractive material for optoelectronics1 and photodetection applications2–6 because it offers a broad spectral bandwidth and fast response times. However, weak light absorption and the absence of a gain mechanism that can generate multiple charge carriers from one incident photon have limited the responsivity of graphene-based photodetectors to ∼1022 AW21. Here, this group […]
