Gold and silver nanoparticles feature strong plasmonic resonances in the visible to near-infrared spectral range that can be utilized to manipulate them by means of light. In our research team, we explore how the plasmonic properties of noble metal particles can be employed for enhanced spectroscopy applications, optical force manipulation, localized heat generation and to control thermally induced processes on the micro- and nanoscale.
