Recent results on radiation damping suppression in individual plasmonic resonators are presented. Here, bending of linear plasmonic nano-antennas increases significantly their Q factors above the electrostatic limit while preserving the nature of resonance along with many of its exceptional features. The picture shows electric field enhancement patterns for bent nanostrips under resonance excitation. Picture: G. Della Valle, S.I. Bozhevolnyi, pp. 253–272 (Fig. 10d), in this issue.
