Material Overcomes Plasmon Damping

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
BARCELONA, Spain, Jan. 13, 2015 — High-quality graphene sandwiched between two films of hexagonal boron nitride allows plasmons to propagate over relatively large distances without losing energy. A research team led by the Institute Of Photonic Sciences (ICFO) studied the material using near-field microscopy, finding that plasmon damping was much less than in graphene alone.

The combined materials could enable miniaturized optical circuits for faster signal processing and computing and more efficient sensing, the researchers said. ...Read full article
