Plasmonic Nanowire Shows Promise as Photonic Circuit

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
A new kind of nanowire efficiently guides both light and electricity. A team from the University of Rochester and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology developed a basic photonic integrated circuit consisting of a silver nanowire and a single-layer flake of molybdenum disulfide (MoS2). The concept could translate to computer chips capable of transporting digital information at the speed of light. MoS2 is made up of layers that are weakly bonded to each other, so they can be easily separated. In bulk MoS2, electrons and photons interact as they would in traditional...Read full article
