‘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 […]

Study opens new realms of light-matter interaction

Study opens new realms of light-matter interaction

Some “forbidden” light emissions are in fact possible, could enable new sensors and light-emitting devices. David L. Chandler | MIT News Office July 14, 2016 Emission spectra are a widely used method for identifying chemical compounds; the bright lines reveal the different frequencies of light that can be emitted by an atom. Here, a normal […]

A near infrared holographic glucose sensor

A near infrared holographic glucose sensor

Evangelia Vezouviou et al., have reported  a near infrared holographic glucose sensor. Real-time glucose monitoring has been beneficial in reducing health complications associated with diabetes as well as a decrease in mortality. This report describes a novel holographic platform, fabricated via laser ablation on chitosan hydrogel with gold nanoparticles with a replaying in visible and near […]

Programmable Material Algorithm Solves Universal Coating Problem

If you want to measure the temperature at any point on an object’s surface, a thin coating of programmable material can do the job, say computer scientists. January 11, 2016 The world is full of complex structures such as bridges, roads, wind turbines, power stations, and so on, that have to be carefully monitored to […]

Plasmonic Tip Based on Excitation of Radially Polarized Conical Surface Plasmon Polariton for Detecting Longitudinal and Transversal Fields

Tugchin et al.,  study experimentally the excitation of the radially polarized conical surface plasmon polariton (SPP) in a fully metal-coated conically tapered M-profile fiber which works as a “plasmonic tip” for the scanning near-field optical microscope (SNOM). This structure extends the Kretschmann configuration to the conical geometry. In this plasmonic tip, the radially polarized waveguide mode, […]
