Optical tweezers control nano containers

By now, it is almost a tradition at the Institute of Applied Physics of the University of Münster: Like in the previous years, a research project of the team of Prof. Dr. Cornelia Denz has been selected by the well-known journal "Optics & Photonics News" for the list of the 30 best publications of the year. This unique appreciation for excellent research in the fields of optics and photonics traditionally is announced at the end of the year within in a special issue of the journal.
