Light-Controlled Reactions at the Nanoscale

2 Jun 2022

Physicists at LMU and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics have used for the first time laser light to control the location of light-induced reactions on the surface of nanoparticles.

There is hustle and bustle on the surface of nanoparticles. Molecules dock, dissolve and change their location. All this drives chemical reactions, changes matter and even gives rise to new materials.

The events in the nanocosmos can be controlled with the help of strong electromagnetic fields.
