Magnetically tunable colloidal micromirrors

Author affiliations


Herein we demonstrate a method for decorating highly reflective 2D gold microplates with magnetic nanoparticles to produce an optical colloid that can be actuated using an applied magnetic field. These magnetic micromirrors can be rapidly rotated and exhibit a strong contrast in reflectance between the “on” and “off” states.
