Novel Plasmonic Material Discovered

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind., March 30, 2012 — Titanium nitride, the first nonmetal to be added to the short list of surface-plasmon-supporting materials, could bridge the gap between optics and electronics. The advance could point the way to a new class of optoelectronic devices with unprecedented speed and efficiency. Until now, the best candidates for plasmonic materials were gold and silver. However, these noble metals are not compatible with standard silicon manufacturing technologies, limiting their use in commercial products. Silver also degrades when exposed to air, causing a loss of optical signal and making it a less...Read full article
