Plasmonic materials are complex nanostructures that can be designed and manufactured to significantly alter electromagnetic radiation in ways not available to traditional thin film devices. These new materials offer measurement and characterization challenges to determine their unique properties and improve our understanding of the underlying physics of nanostructured materials. Applications of plasmonics ranging from unique filters for spectral control to hyperbolic and negative refractive index materials enabling novel photonic devices are all very active areas of research today. © 2013 Woodhead Publishing Limited All rights reserved.
