  • To achieve the results, the researchers sculpted a metallic structure, dubbed a plasmonic polarizer directly on the facet of a quantum cascade (QC) laser.

    undefined

  • Using a standard quantum cascade (QC) laser, the researchers added a metallic structure called a plasmonic polarizer to the laser's facet.

  • When light is shone on a so-called plasmonic metal material - nothing to do with Plasmon Inc. 's optical drives, by the way - its electrons vibrate and give out evanescent waves at a shorter wavelength than that of normal light.

    The Register

  • Electrons inside plasmonic nanoparticles resonate with input from an outside electromagnetic source in the same way a drop of water will make ripples in a pool.
