Plasmonic co-planar systems appear to be a good candidate to elaborate the elementary building blocks of ultra-compact optical circuits. However, existing prototypes are mostly fabricated by top-down methods and based on fixed geometries that “freeze” the available plasmons states.

The PlaCoRe project proposes an alternative strategy that lies on the development of plasmonic components designed from highly crystalline and mobile colloidal assemblies. PlaCoRe gathers chemists, physicists and theoreticians from 3 leading groups in plasmonics (CEMES Toulouse, ICB Dijon and Inst. Néel Grenoble) to develop reconfigurable plasmonics on this basis.
