Felix Benz wins Abdus Salam prize

Nov 29, 2016

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.
