Interfacing electrons and photons at the nanometerscale may lead to ultrasmall light-emitting devices for computer screens or to ultrafast on-chip optical communication. We have developed electrically connected optical nanoantennas that serve as a platform for series of experiments in which electrons and photons interact strongly to produce new physical effects.
