Abstract

original image

Research in the field of surface plasmonics is finding application in many areas; for example, in data storage, nano-electronics, and biosensing. In their feature article on page 529, H. Gao et al. describe recent progress in manipulating surface plasmons from the ultraviolet to near-infrared wavelengths using nanostructured plasmonic crystals (shown in the cover image), and build a comprehensive library of plasmonic resonances, bringing together for the first time the resonance characteristics of key plasmonic materials.
