Dark-field optical tweezers for nanometrology of metallic nanoparticles
Applications of metallic nanoparticles are based on their strongly size-dependent optical properties. We present a method for combining optical tweezers with dark field microscopy that allows measurement of localised surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) spectra on single isolated nanoparticles without compromising the strength of the optical trap. Using this spectroscopic information in combination with measurements of trap stiffness and hydrodynamic drag, allows us to determine the dimensions of...[Show more]
