In-fiber plasmonics using niobium thin films published in Scientific Reports

We recently published a paper in Scientific Reports presenting the first demonstration of niobium as a plasmonic material, with several advantages compared to conventional materials such as silver and gold. Optical fibers are a fantastic platform to show this. This is my first paper published in the new group at IPHT!
