Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Optical tweezers provide a non-contact three-dimensional (3D) method for nanoscale positioning. We assemble a 3D light guiding structure comprising a chain of gold-silica nanoshells and show structures assembled from hundreds of chemically-linked building blocks.
