  • Like a tuning fork struck with a mallet, tiny gold nanodisks can be made to vibrate at resonant frequencies when struck by light. In new research this week, Rice University chemist Stephan Link and colleagues showed how to selectively alter those vibrational frequencies by gathering different-sized nanodisks into groups.
