Researchers have demonstrated that an array of novel gold, pillar-bowtie nanoantennas can be used like traditional photographic film to record light.

Thank you to all who have submitted. Winners to be announced at the Materials Today Asia conference in December.

Researchers have developed a novel, tunable nanoantenna that paves the way for new kinds of plasmonic-based optomechanical systems.

Scientists have demonstrated for the first time a photonic router – a quantum device based on a single atom.
