  • The ability to define nano-units with a very high accuracy and reproduce them with ease and low cost over large areas will become a key ingredient toward the elaboration of future optical devices based on plasmonics and metamaterials. A collaborative team led by Noginov develops a new approach along this direction. In their paper, Barnakov et al. discuss a fabrication method based on silver-filled alumina templates as a way to achieve curved metamaterials. Paper: "Toward Curvilinear Metamaterials Based on Silver-Filled Alumina Templates," Optical Materials Express, Vol. 1, Issue 6, pp. 1061-1064. http://www.opticsinfobase.org/ome/abstract.cfm?URI=ome-1-6-1061

  • Another collaborative team led by Linden reports on a powerful technique for the spatial and spectral mapping of the plasmonic modes of lithographically defined photonic meta-atoms. In this paper, Cube et al. show the importance of advanced characterization tools such as electron energy-loss spectroscopy (EELS) combined with transmission electron microscopy, capable to probe with a sub-wavelength resolution the properties of individual nano-units in metamaterials. Paper: "Spatio-spectral characterization of photonic meta-atoms with electron energy-loss spectroscopy," Optical Materials Express, Vol. 1, Issue 6, pp. 1009-1018. http://www.opticsinfobase.org/ome/abstract.cfm?URI=ome-1-5-1009
