Researchers at Dr. King’s group have measured nanometer-scale infrared absorption in semiconductor plasmonic microparticles using a technique that combines atomic force microscopy with infrared spectroscopy. The ability to directly measure the plasmonic behavior within individual microparticles will allow researchers to design and test more complex optical materials. Paper available here.
