In this paper, we have demonstrated a nano-particle rotation above a plasmonic gold trimer nano-structure with a nanogap. We designed the plasmonic trimer nano-structure which has a resonant frequency matched to excitation and made it with electron beam lithography with metal lift-off process. At first, with an actively rotating linearly polarized beam excitation, we have realized a rotational motion of a trapped nano-particle synchronized to a polarization of beam. Next, we observed a nano-particle rotation using a circularly polarized beam. From the auto-correlation of position time trace with sinusoidal fitting, we confirmed a faster rotation of nano-particle than that of an actively rotating linearly polarized beam.
