The dynamics of plasmonic skyrmions made from light on ultra-smooth gold platelets
The destructive force of a tornado occurs due to the extremely high rotational speeds in its center, which is called “vortex”. Surprisingly, similar effects as in such storms are predicted for light that travels along an atomically smooth gold surface. This light can exhibit angular momentum and vortices.
