  • Author(s): Angela Vasanelli, Simon Huppert, Andrew Haky, Thibault Laurent, Yanko Todorov, and Carlo Sirtori A full quantum treatment of plasmons confined in a semiconductor layer, going beyond the commonly employed electromagnetic models, indicates the existence of higher order longitudinal modes that are subsequently experimentally observed.
