3D Bichiral Plasmonic Crystals: Three-Dimensional Bichiral Plasmonic Crystals Fabricated by Direct Laser Writing and Electroless Silver Plating (Adv. Mater. 27/2011)



original image

The front cover depicts a three-dimensional bichiral plasmonic crystal. On p. 3018 André Radke and co-workers describe the fabrication via direct laser writing and subsequent electroless silver plating. The fabricated crystals exhibit a large difference in transmittance of left-handed and right-handed circularly polarized light in the mid-infrared spectral region. This effect is largely angle-insensitive. Cover design by Sven M. Hein and André Radke, University of Stuttgart.
