This image illustrates the light pattern generated by a 30 nm (virus-sized) particle when exposed to laser irradiation. This result is part of the HoloZcan project's simulations. In the image, the light waves travel from above, moving downward. The particle, located at the center, creates intensity ripples in the light around it—similar to how a rock disrupts the waves of the sea. Even a small, virus-sized particle appears to cause sufficient wave disturbances in the laser light to be detectable by cameras.
