Kirigami-Inspired Technique Manipulates Light at Nanoscale
Kirigami-Inspired Technique Manipulates Light at Nanoscale
Researchers have applied the principles of kirigami — the traditional art of paper folding and cutting — to the fabrication of advanced 3D nanodevices for manipulating light. The team believes that “nanokirigami” could offer an intelligent 3D nanofabrication method beyond traditional bottom-up, top-down, and self-assembly nanofabrication techniques.
