Infrared Plasmonic Biosensor for Real-Time and Label-Free Monitoring of Lipid Membranes

    Odeta Limaj et al., report infrared plasmonic biosensor for real-time and lable-free monitoring of lipid membranes. In this work, they present an infrared plasmonic biosensor for chemical-specific detection and monitoring of biomimetic lipid membranes in a label-free and real-time fashion. Lipid membranes constitute the primary biological interface mediating cell signaling and interaction with […]

Plasmonic Lasers Get a Sharper Focus

RESEARCH NEWS Plasmonic Lasers Get a Sharper Focus Stewart Wills   In the Lehigh team’s “antenna feedback” approach, the plasmonic-laser cavity is enclosed between two metal films, with periodic slits on the top film. One SPP wave is confined inside the 10-micron-thick cavity; the other, with a larger spatial extent, is located on top of […]

Self-consistent description of graphene quantum amplifier

Self-consistent description of graphene quantum amplifier

The development of active and passive plasmonic devices is challenging due to the high level of dissipation in normal metals. One possible solution to this problem is using alternative materials. Graphene is a good candidate for plasmonics in the near-infrared region. In this paper, we develop a quantum theory of a graphene plasmon generator. Lozovic […]

Spectropolarimetry of single plasmonic nanostructures

Spectropolarimetry of single plasmonic nanostructures

Shubham Chandel, Subir Kumar Ray, Jalpa Soni, Satyabrata Raj and Nirmalya Ghosh A novel dark-field Mueller-matrix spectroscopic system facilitates the recording of complete polarization information from a single isolated plasmonic nanorod. 21 September 2016, SPIE Newsroom. DOI: 10.1117/2.1201608.006598 The optimization of plasmonic systems—i.e., those based on ‘plasmons,’ the quanta of plasma oscillations—could enable their use in a […]

‘Sniffer plasmons’ could detect explosives

Physicists from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) have found that the two-dimensional form of carbon, known as graphene, might be the ideal material for manufacturing plasmonic devices capable of detecting explosive materials, toxic chemicals, and other organic compounds based on a single molecule, says an article published in Physical Review B.   Plasmons in […]

Silicon brings more color to holograms

Silicon brings more color to holograms

Silicon holograms harness the full visible spectrum to bring holographic projections one step closer. We can’t yet send holographic videos to Obi-Wan Kenobi on our droid, but researchers at Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), Singapore, have got us a little bit closer by creating holograms from an array of silicon structures that work […]
