Plasmon Wave Propagates for 80 µm with No Diffraction

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Sept. 7, 2012 — A needle-like beam of light that propagates for an unprecedented distance of 80 µm without spreading could greatly reduce signal loss for on-chip optical systems. The cosine-Gauss plasmon beam, caused by quasiparticles called surface plasmons, remains very narrow and controlled along an unprecedented distance, said a Harvard University-led American and French team. The surface plasmons travel in tight confinement with a nanostructured metal surface. The metallic stripes that carry these plasmons have the potential to replace standard copper electrical interconnects in...Read full article
