Gallium/Aluminium nanocomposite material for nonlinear optics and nonlinear plasmonics

Gallium/Aluminium nanocomposite material for nonlinear optics and nonlinear plasmonics
Gallium/Aluminium nanocomposite material for nonlinear optics and nonlinear plasmonics
We report on a new type of composite metallic structure for nonlinear optics and nonlinear plasmonics, created by grain boundary penetration of gallium into an aluminum film. These composite films form mirrorlike interfaces with silica and show an exceptionally broadband phase-transition-based nonlinear response to optical excitation.

Abstract

We report on a new type of composite metallic structure for nonlinear optics and nonlinear plasmonics, created by grain boundary penetration of gallium into an aluminum film. These composite films form mirrorlike interfaces with silica and show an exceptionally broadband phase-transition-based nonlinear response to optical excitation.
