plasmon

 [plaz´mon]
the hereditary factors of the cytoplasm of an oocyte.

plas·mon

(plaz'mŏn),
The total of the extrachromosomal genetic determinants of the eukaryotic cell cytoplasm.

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.

plas·mon

(plaz'mon)
The total of the extrachromosomal genetic properties of the eukaryotic cell cytoplasm.

Surface plasmon resonance takes place through the two gold nanowires embedded symmetrically across the core.
The problem when you switch from light waves to surface plasmons, though, is that plasmons very quickly lose their power - they move real fast, but tend to peter out long before they reach their destination.
Plasmonics is an emerging field, but it has its limitations due to the loss of energy in the metal layers, which dissipate the plasmon energy into heat.
The propagation constant of the surface plasmons confined to the interface of a semi-infinite dielectric and a semi-infinite metal can be expressed as
Surface plasmon resonance (SPR) has been exploited primarily in the area of sensing due to the level of sensitivity and selectivity that the technique offers.
The Plasmogram is intrinsically a device viewed in transmission because surface plasmons work in transmission mode.
We discuss a recent advance in optical transduction that capitalizes on plasmons and man-made nanomaterials, which can come together to create a sensitivity so improved that "we can potentially see the binding of a single molecule," says Andrei Kabashin, CNRS Research Director at Aix-Marseille University and lead researcher on the work.
