The properties of a solid depend on the arrangement of its atoms, which form a periodic crystal structure

New Nanoscale Imaging Method Finds Application in Plasmonics

by National Institute of Standards and Technology
Researchers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the University of Maryland have shown how to make nanoscale measurements of critical properties of plasmonic nanomaterials—the specially engineered nanostructures that modify the interaction of light and matter for a variety of applications, including sensors, cloaking (invisibility), photovoltaics and therapeutics.
