Electrolytes consist of positively and negatively charged ions even in equilibrium. Hence, plasmonic behavior can be observed in ionic systems and interaction effects between the charge carriers may play a sizable role as compared to the quantum effects observed for metal nanoparticles beyond a classical Maxwellian description. I study ionic plasmon effects, i.e., collective charge oscillations, in electrolytes in the scope of a nonlocal, two-fluid model using the hydrodynamic theory of charges… CONTINUE READING
