Nanophotonic of plasmonic
waveguide structure is the recent technology in high speed and ultra-compact optical devices.
THE use of plasmonic
black metals could someday provide a pathway to more efficient photovoltaics (PV) --the use of solar panels containing photovoltaic solar cells -- to improve solar energy harvesting, according to researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL).

The promising field of plasmonics
has yielded methods for guiding and localizing light at the nanoscale.
Dionne says that the most promising method of moving tiny particles with light relies on plasmonics
, a technology that takes advantage of the optical and electronic properties of metals.
This edition has been updated with new examples, exercises, and sections on optical control of spin, quantum dots, diamond NV centers, carbon nanostructures, negative refraction, and plasmonics
The light-and-electron hybrid is called a surface plasmon wave, and the study of this bizarre phenomenon is called plasmonics
The card moves blood, serum, and other fluids through channels slightly wider than a human hair, and the device uses plasmonics
to determine if proteins from the sample have bonded to the detecting surfaces inside the card.
Among the invited speakers were IOP fellow Professor Anatoly Zayats of Kings College London, who spoke on photonic spin-hall effects in plasmonics
and metamaterials; and IOP members Dr Matthias Keller of the University of Sussex, who spoke on interfacing ions and photons, and Andrew Horsley of the University of Basel, Switzerland, who spoke on quantum metrology with atoms, NV centres and mechanical oscillators.
Combining electronics, photonics, and nanostructures, explains Li, plasmonics
studies interactions between electromagnetic waves and matter at the nanoscale.
In the past few decades, plasmonics
is setting a new trend in the field of optics and has attracted lot of researchers.
(the phenomenon of how light interacts with metals on the nanoscale --see HN August 2013), the researchers have been able to go beyond the capability of conventional optical technologies and achieve much greater levels of control over the hologram when the optical antennas are integrated with liquid crystals.
