Nanyang Technological University and University of Southampton Launch The Photonics Institute

The next generation of ultra-fast Internet or ground-breaking electronic circuits, powered by light instead of electricity, could very well be built on research done at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in conjunction with the University of Southampton. [More]
Gold Nanoparticle Chains Facilitate Highly Confined Light Propagation

Gold Nanoparticle Chains Facilitate Highly Confined Light Propagation

Researchers from Singapore and Bristol in association with the Centre d'Elaboration de Matériaux et d'Etudes Structurales (CEMES, CNRS) have demonstrated the confinement of light energy to nano scale level by aligning crystalline gold nanoparticles and fusing them into long chains. The research was published in the Nature Materials website. [More]
