From KurzweilAI.net — Nanotechnology news from Rice University on light-bending nanoparticles.

Scientists Create Light-Bending Nanoparticles
PhysOrg.com, Mar. 3, 2009

Rice University researchers discovered that Cup-shaped gold nanostructures can bend light in a controllable way, acting like three-dimensional nano-antennas, Rice University researchers have discovered.

This property should prove useful in developing new optical materials and devices, such as solar cells, light attenuators, and chip-to-chip optical interconnects.
