Our work on the cover of Small

last modified Dec 03, 2013 11:21 AM

Our recent article, "Watching single nanoparticles grow in real time through supercontinuum spectroscopy", is highlighted on the inside cover of Small. 

DOI: 10.1002/smll.201300958

A fast dark-field scattering technique capturing full broadband spectra with millisecond time-resolution enables us to monitor the growth or assembly of single nano-objects in situ and in real time. Applying this technique to study the growth of single gold nanorods, together with scanning electron microscopy and finite-difference time-domain simulations, reveals precise quantitative information about gold nanorod growth kinetics.

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.
