Surface plasmons are quanta of collective oscillations of free electrons at metal-insulator interface, usually excited by photons. Since it was first proposed in 1950s by Ritchie, new interests have been aroused due to recent advances in synthesis and fabrica-tion of various nanostructures. Novel optical properties were frequently reported on these materials, with great potential applica-tions in physics, chemistry, biology and cancer therapy, etc. Some of them have even exhibited enormous...

Microorganisms are everywhere and most of them are harmless, but they can do a lot of damage in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals or in tissue transplants. With the aid of a new device, germs can be detected in artificial cartilage within a few hours. We are surrounded by microorganisms. They inhabit our skin, the air we breathe, the surfaces we touch. In most cases this is not a problem, but there are situations in which these constant companions can be dangerous or even life-threatening....

EPSRC-funded research develops advanced sensors for detection of chemicals and illegal drugs Scientists at Queen's University Belfast are developing new sensors to detect chemical agents and illegal drugs which will help in the fight against the threat of terrorist attacks. The devices will use special gel pads to 'swipe' an individual or crime scene to gather a sample which is then analyzed by a scanning instrument that can detect the presence of chemicals within seconds. This will allow...
