Researchers develop ultrahigh-performance plasmonic metal-oxide materials

Credit: CC0 Public Domain In a study published in Advanced Materials, researchers from Hefei National Laboratory for Physical Sciences at the Microscale, the University of Science and Technology of China of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, using an electron-proton co-doping strategy, invented a new metal-like semiconductor material with excellent plasmonic resonance performance. This material achieves […]

Higher-resolution imaging of living, moving cells using plasmonic metasurfaces — ScienceDaily

In the quest to image exceedingly small structures and phenomenon with higher precision, scientists have been pushing the limits of optical microscope resolution, but these advances often come with increased complication and cost. Now, researchers in Japan have shown that a glass surface embedded with self-assembled gold nanoparticles can improve resolution with little added cost […]
