Abstract

We present a novel method for sensitive mapping of optical intensity distributions at subdiffraction-limited resolution. This is achieved with a novel device, a plasmonic nanopore, which combines a plasmonic bowtie nanoantenna with a 10 nm-in-diameter solid-state nanopore. Variations in the local optical intensity modulate the plasmonic heating, which we measure electrically through changes in the ionic conductance of the nanopore. We demonstrate the method by profiling the focal volume of a 10 mW laser beam that is tightly focused by a high-numerical-aperture microscope objective. The results show a complex three-dimensional intensity distribution that closely matches predictions obtained by theoretical calculations of the optical system. In addition to laser profiling, the ionic conductance of a nanopore is also shown to provide quantitative estimates of the temperature in the proximity of single plasmonic nanostructures.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 5. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 20 March 2018.
All research outputs
#2,594,963
of 11,374,720 outputs
Outputs from Nano Letters
#2,925
of 7,297 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#75,686
of 326,552 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Nano Letters
#98
of 148 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 11,374,720 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 77th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 7,297 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 10.0. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 59% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 326,552 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 76% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 148 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 33rd percentile – i.e., 33% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
