Researchers squeeze light into nanoscale devices and circuits

Investigators have made a major breakthrough in nanophotonics research, with their invention of a novel ‘home-built’ cryogenic near-field optical microscope that has enabled them to directly image, for the first time, the propagation and dynamics of graphene plasmons at variable temperatures down to negative 250 degrees Celsius. If researchers can harness this nanolight, they will be able to improve sensing, subwavelength waveguiding, and optical transmission of signals.
