Imaging ultrafast carriers for nanoscale electronics
Ultrafast carrier movements in 1D nanoscale devices, such as silicon nanowires and carbon nanotube transistors, can be visualized using femtosecond photocurrent microscopy.
Laser printing of silicon nanoparticles and living cells
Laser-induced transfer technology can print very small and delicate objects for applications in nanophotonics and tissue engineering.
