Light scattering from a pair of nanoparticles
Light scattering from a pair of nanoparticles. This research was performed at the National Science Foundation (NSF)-supported Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center (NSEC) for Integrated Nanopatterning and Detection Technologies, headquartered at Northwestern University. NSEC brings together a unique partnership of academic institutions, industrial partners and national labs in an effort to advance development of advanced nanopatterning techniques and nanoscale sensors.
The work is supported primarily by NSF's Nanoscale Science and Engineering Initiative (grant EEC-01-18025). (Year of image: 2002)
