Nanoscience: Dark-hot resonances

The resonant behaviour of clusters of gold nanoparticles has been tuned by gradually bringing the particles together. The approach could have many applications, including chemical and biological sensing.
Resonances are ubiquitous natural phenomena that occur on all spatial scales — from the largest distances in the Universe to the tiniest dimensions of elementary particles. They have great significance in both fundamental science and practical applications.
