Davis and Smolyanivov Plasmon Microscope Research Featured in Physical Review Letters


Professor Christopher Davis and ECE Associate Research Scientist Igor I. Smolyanivov are in the news for their work on a high resolution 2-D plasmon microscope. Their work has been accepted for publication in an upcoming issue of Physical Review Letters, perhaps the most prestigious of all physics journals.

The photo above, taken from the article to appear, shows a 100-micron-wide drop of glycerin (dark ellipse) acting as a parabolic focusing mirror in a new technique that can reveal details smaller than a wavelength of light using an ordinary microscope. (The blue is scattered laser light.)
