On-wire lithography is a new nanofabrication technique that can be used to design functionalized nanowires for both encoding and biosensing applications.

Investigations in the burgeoning field of nanophotonics have demonstrated that certain nanostructures act in previously unanticipated ways. One such behavior is surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS), an area of substantial interest, as demonstrated by the hundreds of scientific papers published on the subject during the past 5 years. SERS was discovered over 3 decades ago.1–3 It transforms the basic Raman technique (a measure of the structure and properties of molecules based on their interaction with light that normally has very weak intensity relative to other spectroscopies) into one that has...

Invisibility cloak and gravitational control using nonlinear optics and morphogenetic technology V.Grebennikov
Electromagnetic metamaterials are artificially structured composites that can be engineered to have desired electromagnetic properties, while having other advantageous material properties. In addition to their potential in practical applications and devices, metamaterials can offer unique and previously unexplored material properties.

""Negative Index Materials
What are negative index materials? How do they work? All known naturally occurring materials possess positive refractive index. Metamaterials, however, can be designed to have a negative refractive index, and will thus bend light in a unique manner. Our group studies the fundamental properties of negative refraction, as well as practical applications for negative index metamaterials. More information can be found on our negative refraction home page.
>> I guess, because photons from light are used to explain linear quality of optics, yet were they of typical material properties, there would be instant jam, all space would be like a photons-for-pool-balls first break

Nanotubes Increase Solar PV Conductivity 100 Million-Fold  — Sourceable
Carbon-based nanostructures are already being used as materials in solar cells with increasing frequency, yet their ability to enhance electrical performance has thus far been hampered by limited ability to assemble orderly networks using the materials.
