Watching Plasmonic Crystals Move to the Acoustic Beat

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


Femtosecond photoexcitation produces coherent, picosecond structural oscillations in plasmonic nanocrystals. Because the motions are tiny and fleeting, elucidating the influence of non-uniform interactions is challenging. Now, researchers have directly imaged such angstrom-scale single-particle dynamics using a highly sensitive ultrafast electron microscope.
