New plasmonic materials used as building blocks instead of conventional silver and gold offer many advantages in the rapidly growing fields of plasmonics and metamaterials including low loss, compatibility with standard semiconductor nanofabrication processes, and tunability. Here we consider transparent conducting oxides that enable high-performance metamaterial devices operating in the near-IR and transition-metal nitrides that can be substitutes for conventional metals in the visible range.
