Shedding New Light on Nano Hot Spots

Doctoral student Larousse Khosravi Korashad and Dr. Alexander Govorov

By Jean Andrews Physics & Astronomy OHIO physicists show that temperature and heat created by light can be concentrated in small volumes, creating a more efficient nanostructure for energy, photo-chemistry and solar applications in a recent article in Nature Communications.  Nature Communications is an open access journal that publishes high-quality research from […]
