Enhanced Refractive Index Sensing with Monodisperse Faceted Plasmonic Nanoparticles

Research

The shape-dependent optical properties of metal nanostructures have motivated efforts to correlate nanoparticle structure with plasmonic behavior. In particular, gold bipyramids (BPs) are of interest due to their sharp tips that lead to strong localized field enhancement and high sensitivity to the surrounding
