Experiments verify the phenomenon of a photonic hook

Scientists have experimentally proved an earlier predicted effect of 'photonic hook' that is a new type of curved self-accelerating light beam shaped like a hook. The ease of generation and physical properties make it promising for use in super-resolution microscopes, for the creation of biosensors and biological research where the control of molecules is needed.
