plasmon

(plăz′mŏn′)
n.
1. The aggregate of cytoplasmic or extranuclear genetic material in an organism.
2. A quantum of collective electron oscillation in a metal, considered as a quasiparticle and analogous to the oscillations of a plasma consisting of stationary positive ions and a gas of electrons.

plasmon

An antiquated term for the sum of intracellular DNA exclusive of nuclear DNA, and according to some, also exclusive of mitochondrial DNA; individual fragments of DNA had been termed plastogenes.

This phenomenon, called plasmonics, has many promising applications: it may be exploited to transmit optical signals through nanosized interconnects on chips, in nanoparticles that recognize and interact with biomolecules, or in solar cells, to increase the light absorption in the cell s photoactive material, paving the way toward thinner and therefore less expensive energy generation.
