Engineers find a way to control chemical catalysts with sculpted light

Caption
In a proof-of-concept experiment, researchers placed nanorods (used as catalysts) above gold nanobars, which "sculpted" light around the nanorods. This sculpted light changed the regions on the nanorods where chemical reactions took place.
