[en] plasmonics
[en] Plasmonic hotspots are regions on the surface of metal nanostructures where light causes very strong oscillation of the electrons. Because electron oscillations constitute an electric current and because electric currents heat up the material the same way an electric stove heats up in the kitchen, the plasmonic hotspots are extremely hot. So hot that they can melt the gold in a spot much smaller than the wavelength of light. We were successfully able to demonstrate that this tiny little pool of molten gold can give rise to the smallest nanojets ever observed.
