Pseudomagnetic fields for sound at the nanoscale

Unlike electrons, phonons do not feel a magnetic field, since they are not charged. As a consequence, much of the interesting physics connected to the behaviour of charged particles in a magnetic field is absent for phonons, be...[more]


Material-Composition-Induced Chiral Optical Response Of Symmetric Nanoparticle Ensembles

Chiral light-matter-interaction is an intriguing phenomenon, which links the geometry and symmetry of certain molecules or nanostructures with their ability to sense the handedness of light. Recently, numerous concepts for...[more]


Light microscopy provides a deep insight into protein structure

An innovative fluorescence microscopy method makes it possible to image protein structures with a resolution of less than half a nanometre[more]


Optical fibre with Einstein effect

Twisted photonic crystal fibres guide light by a mechanism similar to the bending of light rays by large celestial masses[more]


A single molecule as a high-fidelity photon gun
