Plasmonic materials encompass a broad range of materials including non-noble metals, 2D-materials, doped oxides and semiconductors, ceramics, and chiral assemblies. By enabling a wealth of applications spanning from non-liner optics to photonics, optoelectronics, photocatalysis, photoelectrochemistry, biosensing, and medicine, plasmonics has become a multidisciplinary field. This special topic will provide a timely forum for highlighting emerging classes of materials that support plasmon excitation, sharing recent advances in theory, modelling, spectroscopic approaches, and fabrication methods that are advancing fundamental understanding of plasmon excitation, and showcasing new applications enabled by plasmonics. In addition to original research articles, invited tutorials and perspectives will provide hints for new physical insights and applications for future research.
Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
- Phase Change-, Active-, and Reconfigurable- Plasmonics
- 2D-materials for plasmonics
- Chalcogenides and Ceramic materials based plasmonics
- Semiconductors and oxides for plasmonics
- New metallic alloys for plasmonics
- Epsilon-near-zero and topological materials for plasmonics
- All dielectric metasurfaces, chiral plasmonics, and metal-dielectric-metal structures
- Non-linear optical effects
- Fabrication methods, Spectroscopies, and Modelling
- Applications of plasmonics

Submission and acceptance criteria:
Manuscripts considered for publication as Articles in Journal of Applied Physics are expected to meet the journal’s standard of acceptance, i.e. to report on original and timely results that significantly advance understanding in the current status of contemporary applied physics: material that is exclusively review in nature is not considered for publication. Manuscripts submitted for consideration in this Special Topic must meet the same criteria and will undergo the journal’s standard peer-review process. The Editorial Team of Journal of Applied Physics will issue final decisions on the submitted manuscripts.
