"Nanoplasmonics: Reaching Out to the Single Molecule"


lun 01/04/2019 - 15:00 - Aula Rossa, Dipartimento di Fisica



Arthur Ashkin won the Nobel prize last year for his work on optical tweezers; however, those conventional optical tweezers are limited to objects that are >100 nm in size. This talk will review our work on nanoaperture optical tweezers that can trap particles down to the single digit nanometer size, including proteins. I will describe how to measure the low frequency Raman modes of these particles (including proteins and DNA fragments) with high spectral resolution, as well as the THz dynamics of nanoparticles. I will emphasize recent developments in nanofabrication and some exciting biophysical problems we are studying.
