Metallic nanojunctions support localised plasmon resonances and boost light matter interactions, but dynamical phenomena are poorly understood. Here, the authors report intrinsic photoluminescence blinking from plasmonic nanojunctions, originating from light-induced atomic scale restructuring of the metal.
