A “Nanoprism” Probe for Nano-optical Applications



original image

“Nanoprism” probes are fabricated for nano-optical applications. The fabrication process is scalable for mass-production, and can be used to prepare nanoprobes terminated with virtually any nanostructure, such as nanoprisms, ZnO nanorods, and nanoparticles. ANSOM imaging was performed on a nanoparticle using Au-nanoprism probes, revealing field localization at the vertices of the nanoprism.
