Decay of surface plasmons into hot electrons leads to highly localized transformations of molecules facilitating binding of appropriately functionalized gold colloids. (Prof Stefan Maier).
Designer photonic modes in dielectric nanostructures enable vast enhancement of nonlinear light interactions.(Prof Stefan Maier).
Plasmon-induced molecular transformation allow controlled placement of gold colloids on silver bow tie antennas.(Prof Stefan Maier).
