Optical trapping at the ultimate nanoscale in the near-field of plasmonic antennas

We study the trapping of nanoscopic objects in the near-field of plasmonic nanostructures and demonstrate experimentally that 10nm particles can be trapped in the 15nm gap of a dipole antenna. Applications for biosensing are discussed.
