An adaptive plasmonic lens

” Nature highlights a recent ACS Photonics study on a novel reconfigurable lens”¬†

In constant search for miniaturizing commercial optical devices, integrated micro-optical elements play a central role in the development of applications that aim to improve high-density data storage and imaging. Until now, such devices presented the drawback of fine aligning and adjusting the focus through mechanically operations, therefore, limiting their accuracy, size and speed.
