Pico-Photonics: what can be seen with extreme confinement of light — •Jeremy Baumberg — NanoPhotonics Centre, Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge

Recent advances in using noble metals to confine light to the sub-nm3 scale through advanced plasmonics is opening up a new realm of *picoscopy*. I will show how a wide range of dynamic motions of atoms and molecules can be studied on microsecond timescales under ambient conditions, vital for nanoscale applications at interfaces that have been inaccessible.

I will show how simple nano-architectures enable such trapping of visible light, and how elastic and inelastic light scattering reveal detailed spectral information about extremely small volumes of space [1-3]. I will also show how this can generate optical forces sufficient to move individual atoms, molecules, and nanoparticles, and develop the new area of molecular optomechanics. Using nano-composites of plasmonic nanoparticles and thermos-responsive polymers I will demonstrate the utility of the nN forces produced at sub-μs speeds, for creating new types of active nanomachinery.
