DTU researchers from DTU Fotonik and DTU Nanotech working at the Center for Nanostructured Graphene (CNG) have demonstrated that graphene plasmons can be excited with near infrared light. The work was reported earlier this week in Optics Letters and has immediately received world wide attention.

This record high energy brings graphene plasmonics into the technologically relevant regime, and may imply many practical applications. The full press release from the Optical Society of America is available here, and links to other news media covering the DTU discovery are available here.
