Superconductors - a fascinating family of materials discovered about a century ago that exhibit an electrical resistivity that vanishes at a sufficiently low temperature - are now creating exciting opportunities in photonics. In particular, their use in low-loss plasmonic waveguides and metamaterals, artificial structures patterned on a sub-wavelength scale that have customizable electromagnetic properties, is an exciting burgeoning research avenue.

Abstract

The fields of metamaterials and plasmonics are both set to benefit from the use of superconducting materials.

Superconductors - a fascinating family of materials discovered about a century ago that exhibit an electrical resistivity that vanishes at a sufficiently low temperature - are now creating exciting opportunities in photonics. In particular, their use in low-loss plasmonic waveguides and metamaterals, artificial structures patterned on a sub-wavelength scale that have customizable electromagnetic properties, is an exciting burgeoning research avenue.
