onic devices is impeded by light diffraction which prevents confinement of light in the regions smaller than half of its wavelength, said Chabanov. We have promising ideas how to circumvent the diffraction limit by utilizing polaritonic and plasmonic materials. This might enable super-resolution imaging, which can revolutionize label-free detection of biological and chemical substances.

Gennady Shvets, associate professor of physics at UT-Austin and grant co-PI, emphasized the interdisciplinary nature of the work in nanoplasmonics, a very new and promising area of science and technology requiring collaboration between scientists and engineers, specifically, synthetic chemists, material scientists, and experts in modeling, simulation and optics.

Our group will be conducting experiments and theoretical modeling on a mid-infrared superlens, a novel device capable of resolving nanoscale features, said Shvets. We hope that by the end of the project we can integrate the superlens with a nanofluidic delivery system and image various biological objects in their natural water environment.

In addition to introducing high school students to the world of nanoscience, the grant will also help support graduate and doctoral students enrolled in UTSAs joint masters and doctoral program with Southwest Research Institute. Since established in fall 2005, the doctoral program has 27 students enrolled, more than double its initial enrollment.
