Daniel Andrén: Trapping and heating gold nanoparticles with light

​This year’s Nobel prize in physics is awarded in part to the development of optical tweezers, which allow manipulation of small particles with light. Here, the use of such optical tweezers to trap and heat metallic nanoparticles will be discussed. These nanoscopic pieces of metal exhibit light-matter interactions that are unlike their bulk counterparts and studies of them can provide insight into fields such as biology, medicine, thermodynamics, and nanoscience.
