Transdimensional plasmonic materials for tailorable nanophotonics (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): Alexandra Boltasseva; Vladimir M. Shalaev

Paper Abstract

The field of plasmonics has been largely focused on utilizing either conventional materials in the form of thin films, interfaces and nanoparticles, or 2D materials. Yet, the material optical properties’ evolution in the transdimensional regime between 3D and 2D has remained underexplored. In such transdimensional materials that have thickness of only a few atomic layers, the material’s optical and electronic properties are expected to show unprecedented tailorability compared to their 3D counterparts and conventional thin films. Transdimensional materials are expected to show extreme sensitivity to external optical and electrical stimuli thus forming an attractive platform for dynamically tunable nanophotonics.
