Molecular collisions now imaged better than ever

Molecular physicists from Radboud University Nijmegen have produced images of the changes in direction of colliding nitrogen monoxide molecules (NO) with unprecedented sharpness. By combining a Stark decelerator with advanced imaging techniques, they were able to obtain very high resolution images of the collision processes.

Fine-tuning a rainbow of colors at the nanoscale

By varying the geometry of the nanoholes in plasmonic color filters - their diameter, shape, periodicity and pattern - it is possible to control the colors that are transmitted and to create transmit a broad spectrum of colors for imaging applications.
