Emergence of plasma photonics

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The past several years have witnessed the emergence of a subfield of photonics in which the unique optical and electronic properties of microplasmas and gases are coupled with solid phase materials and optical components to realize photodetectors, transistors, photonic crystals, laser sources, and lighting. Highlights of novel plasma or gasbased photonic devices reported in 2010 are described.
