Nano-scale plasmon laser breaks size barrier

Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley (UC), have reached a new milestone in laser physics with the creation of the world’s smallest semiconductor laser, capable of generating visible light in a space smaller than a single protein molecule. Described in the journal Nature, the research breaks new ground as the scientists not only successfully […]

Physicists Surf New Type Of Electron Wave

Physicists from the University of New Hampshire (UNH) have proven the existence of a new type of electron wave on metal surfaces: the acoustic surface plasmon. The work, published in Nature, will impact future developments in nano-optics, high-temperature superconductors, and our understanding of chemical reactions on surfaces. Acoustic surface plasmons have long been predicted but […]
