11.1 Introduction, Setup, and Motivation

In this chapter, a laser-based printing process for the controlled fabrication of spherical nanoparticles is introduced. Spherical nanoparticles can have unique optical properties. Silicon nanoparticles, for example, provide strong electric and magnetic dipole responses within the visible range [1]. This property provides new possibilities for advanced light control at the nanoscale. The simultaneous excitation of both electric and magnetic dipoles within ...
