superlattice

[¦sü·pər′lad·əs]
(electronics)
A structure consisting of alternating layers of two different semiconductor materials, each several nanometers thick.
(solid-state physics)
An ordered arrangement of atoms in a solid solution which forms a lattice superimposed on the normal solid solution lattice. Also known as artificial crystal; artificially layered structure; superstructure.

Abstract: A current limitation in nanoparticle superlattice engineering is that the identities of the particles being assembled often determine the structures that can be synthesized.
It means that the superlattice support electromagnetic modes with oscillatory fields in the LHM layers.
