A new method by researchers at Penn State uses ultraviolet light and small amounts of gold or titanium dioxide nanoparticles to gather larger particles of interest at the point of light. This method was used to gather polystyrene particles, which form a well-packed structure called a colloid crystal, as depicted in this image.
