Nanotechnology: nonlinear magneto-plasmonics


The surface of a metal seems smooth, but a closer look—much closer, at the atomic level—will show that the same surface resembles the surface of a beehive. Most of this surface busyness of a metal comes from its own free electrons, reacting to electromagnetic charges and other stimuli to such a degree that they behave like a plasma, which is why the study of the phenomenon is called “plasmonics.” Scientists are working to manipulate and harness these atomic-level surface interactions, paving the way for the development of a whole new range of high-tech devices and applications.
