|MadSci Network: Physics|
I've seen some references to plasmons in stories on spacedaily.com. But, searching the web finds no layman's explaination about them--only technical papers for condenced matter physisists, or a company that happens to be spelled the same way. Searching madsci shows that the word has never been uttered here before now. So, can you explain what is a plasmon to someone who knows the kinds of things he sees on the Discovery Channel or reads in SciAm?
