Nanoparticle trapping with plasmonic fibre cavites

New tools are necessary to manipulate objects on the nano-scale. It is far from obvious to pick up a nanowire and put it next to the transistor it should be connected to, even if you don't have big fingers. Optical waveguides have proven useful to trap an d propel nanowires, as Hellesø's work has...
