Optical nano-antennas have the capability to control the localisation of light on nanometer spatial scales. Coherent control on the other hand, is a technique that often uses femtosecond laser pulses to control light matter-interactions on an ultrafast time scale. Here, we combine ultrafast coherent control with the investigation of nonlinear optical responses in individual plasmonic nano-antennas to demonstrate the simultaneous ultrafast and ultra-small control of light-matter interactions. This work provides a comprehensive study of the ultrafast coherence in optical nano-antennas and how to engineer the phase of ultrashort laser pulses to exploit it for imaging applications.
