Figure Presented Tunneling to freedom: Plasmons induced by laser irradiation influence the conductivity of a "suspended-wire" molecular junction (see picture). The current enhancement appears to be wavelength- and laser-power-dependent, and is in semiquantitative agreement with theoretical models based on a photon-assisted tunneling mechanism.
