  1. New article on optical nanotweezers designed by computer algorithm

    Neuton’s paper on algorithm-designed plasmonic apertures for optical nanotweezers has been published in Advanced Optical Materials. The apertures were fabricated using a helium ion microscope and were characterised by cathodoluminescence and optical trapping experiments. It was shown that at every laser intensity, an algorithm-designed structure can outperform a conventional plasmonic aperture. Link to paper:
