Optical bistability of an aerosol particle

S. Arnold, K. M. Leung, A. Pluchino

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The optical bistability of an aerosol particle is reported for the first time to the authors’ knowledge. The mechanism for the effect is associated with the photothermal evaporation that accompanies the visible absorption by structure resonances.
