Experiment shows that optical properties of 3D graphene are tuneable

An international research team has for the first time investigated the optical properties of three-dimensional nanoporous graphene. The experiments show that the plasmonic excitations in this new material can be precisely controlled by the pore size and by introducing atomic impurities.
