Physicists Show That a Quantum Particle Made of Light and Matter Can Be Dragged by a Current of Electrons

Posted by in categories: nanotechnology, particle physics, quantum physics

A pair of studies in Nature show that a quasiparticle, known as a plasmon polariton, can be pulled with and against a flow of electrons, a finding that could lead to more efficient ways of manipulating light at the nanoscale.
