New Kid on the Plasmonic Block: Researchers Find Plasmonic Resonances in Semiconductor Nanocrystals, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Study


4/19/2011 7:44:29 AM

ScienceDaily -- ScienceDaily (Apr. 18, 2011) — With its promise of superfast computers and ultrapowerful optical microscopes among the many possibilities, plasmonics has become one of the hottest fields in high-technology. However, to date plasmonic properties have been limited to nanostructures that feature interfaces between noble metals and dielectrics. Now, researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)'s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have shown that plasmonic properties can also be achieved in the semiconductor nanocrystals known as quantum dots. This discovery should make the field of plasmonics even hotter.
