Printing gold nanoparticles

Until now the positioning of nanoparticles onto surfaces required complex techniques. Recently a team of scientists around the NIM physicists Dr. Andrey Lutich and Prof. Jochen Feldmann developed a simple but highly precise procedure: The scientists use light pressure produced by a laser to shoot single gold nanoparticles with a diameter of 80 nanometer onto a surface. By that they can reach a precision of about 50 nanometer.
