Abstract

Non-disperse, periodic microplasmas are generated in a volume lacking interfering structures, such as electrodes, to enable photonic interaction between incident electromagnetic energy and the non-disperse, periodic microplasmas. Preferred embodiments leverage 1D, 2D, 3D and super 3D non-disperse, periodic microplasmas. In preferred embodiments, the non-disperse, periodic microplasmas are elongate columnar microplasmas. In other embodiments, the non-disperse, periodic microplasmas are discrete isolated microplasmas. The photonic properties can change by selectively activating groups of the periodic microplasmas.
