When a light wave strikes a metal film it can, under appropriate conditions, excite a surface plasmon polariton (SPP)--a surface electromagnetic wave that is coupled to the free electrons in the metal. Such SPPs are involved in a wide range of phenomena, including nanoscale optical waveguiding, perfect lensing, extraordinary optical transmission, subwavelength lithography and ultrahigh-sensitivity biosensing. However, before the full potential of technology based on SPPs (termed 'plasmonics… CONTINUE READING
