Using engineered nanocomposite structures called metamaterials, a research team reports the ability to measure a significant increase in the energy transfer between molecules. This breakthrough breaks the Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) distance limit of ~10-20 nanometers, and leads to the possibility of measuring larger molecular assemblies.
