Abstract

We theoretically demonstrate spatiotemporal control of local plasmon distribution on Au nanocrosses, which have different aspect ratios, by chirped ultra-broadband femtosecond laser pulses. We also demonstrate selective excitation of fluorescence proteins using this spatiotemporal local plasmon control technique for applications to two-photon excited fluorescence microscopy.
