We report on the discovery of a new type of optical plasmonic media: by observing absorption lines in a superconducting metamaterial out of Nb, we find that the Nb metamaterial shows plasmonic properties at visible wavelengths. This suggests that superconductors are a feasible platform for a new generation of plasmonic metadevices.
