Researchers from MCI published in prestigious “Physical Review Letters”

Researchers from the Mads Clausen Institute have succeeded in getting an article published in the prestigious scientific journal Physical Review Letters. The article is about nanofiber plasmonic waveguides, which in the future can enable ultra-fast transfer of information technology.

Researchers from the Mads Clausen Institute, University of Southern Denmark, have in cooperation with experts from the Christian Albrechts University of Kiel succeeded in fabricating and analyzing hybrid plasmonic waveguiding structures made of organic nanofibres and metallic nanofilms. These plasmonic waveguides can process computer data extremely fast and are thus considered to become part of the next generation information technology. These research results are highly relevant for a broad scientific community and have caused Physical Review Letters to publish a paper on the subject.


The title of the paper is Morphological tuning of the plasmon dispersion in dielectric-loaded nanofiber waveguides, and it is written by Till Leißner, Christoph Lemke, Jacek Fiutowski, Jörn Willers Radke, Alwin Klick, Luciana Tavares, Jakob Kjelstrup-Hansen, Horst-Günter Rubahn, and Michael Bauer. It was published on July 24 in Physical Review Letters 111 (2013) 046802 and can be accessed here.


Physical Review Letters is a weekly, international journal and the world’s foremost journal publishing short reports on significant fundamental research in all fields of physics.
