Project Title:

Optical control of metallic nanoparticles in microfluidics and living cells

Abstract:

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.
