Felix Benz wins Abdus Salam prize

NanoPhotonics researcher Felix Benz has been awarded the prestigious Abdus Salam prize. His work utilizes the strange properties of tiny particles of gold; light is concentrated down smaller than a single atom enabling a look at individual chemical bonds inside molecules, opening up new ways to study light and matter.
