Mid infrared plasmon mode observed in doped semiconductor SrTiO3

Screen Shot 2015-02-04 at 5.03.47 PM

Mid infrared plasmon mode observed in doped semiconductor SrTiO3 fabricated by Argon ion etching. Color represents near field optical signal, which is overlaid on top of the topography profile in a 24µm square area.

The image is obtained by a RHK broadband variable temperature scanning near field optical microscope.
