Researchers at the Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO) in collaboration with researchers from the CSIC-Optics Institute of Madrid have developed a ultraconcentrated light nanolantern through a resonant optical antenna. This antenna consists of two gold bars of 500 nm each.  

With this nanolantern it has been possible to catch 200 nanometers in size polystyrene droplets. In addition, there have been experiments that show that were intercepted E. coli bacteria without affecting their biological parameters, which was not possible using other techniques.
