Rice scientists use light to probe acoustic tuning in gold nanodisks

Rice University scientists have discovered a new method to tune the light-induced vibrations of nanoparticles through slight alterations to the surface to which they are attached. The research in this week's Nature Communications could open doors for new applications of photonics ranging from molecular sensing to wireless communications.
