Seeing in Color at the Nanoscale


Scientific Achievement

A newly designed microscopy probe uses plasmonic enhancement to capture broadband spectroscopic data with sub-wavelength resolution

Significance

So-called "campanile" probe enables nanoscale spectroscopy, revealing details of light-to-electricity conversion and other chemical processes at atomic length-scales
