Scholarcy highlights

  • Owing to the size mismatch between light and nanoscale objects such as single molecules, it is important to be able to control light–molecule interactions
  • Plasmonic nanoantennas create highly enhanced local fields when pumped resonantly, leading to increased Raman scattering, but whether fluorescence enhancement occurs depends upon a variety of factors
  • Bowtie nanoantennas show great potential for high-contrast selection of single nanoemitters
