By using microwave CVD, high quality, single crystal diamond membranes have been epitaxially grown. The resulting material exhibits bright luminescence and good...
Researchers at Oregon State University have discovered a way to make a new metamaterial that might accomplish negative refraction of light.
Issue 1 of Advanced Optical Materials features twelve papers from leading research groups, covering all aspects of light–matter interactions.
A simple two step process was developed to fabricate substrates with flexible free standing nanopillars which exhibit a large and uniform Raman...
Electro-optical materials can be efficiently poled with a static field generated by pyroelectric crystals, report A.K.-Y. Jen and coworkers.
Scientists have fabricated a 3D metamaterial, which shows linear and circular dichroism, using a self-assembled block copolymer as a template.
A tale of holography, spun from the Bombyx mori silkworm.
Using plasmonic hotspots, gold nanostructures can be melted and made to produce the smallest nanojets ever observed.
A new rare-earth-ion-doped optical amplifier has performance comparable to semiconductor amplifiers.
An ambitious theoretical investigation into the properties of cuprous oxide suggests it possesses remarkable non-linear optical (NLO) properties.
