Project Title:

Optical control of metallic nanoparticles in microfluidics and living cells


Metallic nanoparticles have unique physical, chemical, and optical properties in comparison to bulk material. When irradiated by resonant light, the surface plasmons lead to a dramatic increase in absorption. The absorbed energy is dissipated as heat thus creating a localized heat gradient around the particle. We seek to uncover the interaction between light and metallic nanoparticles and utilize the effect for microfluidic and cellular control.
