The first system for rapid capture and moving nanoobjects is invented


Researchers have developed the first system for dynamic trapping and moving objects of less than 100 nm.

Currently, the seizure of nanomaterials is made using focused laser rays, but for further manipulations, atomic force microscopy is used. In this case, due to the large diameter of light fields, it is difficult to work with individual objects located close to the other.

Now the team from Vanderbilt University introduced the first low-frequency electrothermoplasmone tweezers, which not only provides a new trailing mechanism, but also allows transportation of colloidal nanoalmas in two dimensions in seconds.

The developed system combines a low-power laser with a low-frequency electrical field of alternating current.

Colloid nanoalmasses with a nitrogen-vacant center are considered a key element of quantum computers, since they can effectively produce single photons used to process information.

According to the team, the new technology opens the way to create more advanced nanofotonic structures that will determine the future of computing.
