A plasmonic nano-trap for the optical confinement of quantum dots

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We numerically compute the optical forces on a quantum dot, under excitonic resonance conditions, confined to a sub diffraction limited volume in the resonantly enhanced near-field of a suitably engineered metal nano-structure optical trap.
