Self-assembly of latex particles for the creation of nanostructures with tunable plasmonic properties

Author affiliations

Abstract

In this short review we are discussing the creation of two dimensional nanostructures based on self-assembly of latex particles. Furthermore we are showing that optical properties of these structures can be controlled with their morphology and materials used for their preparation. Two representative structures, namely two dimensional arrays of triangles and holes are discussed in detail, starting with the preparatory step, followed by the structural and optical characterization, as well as the theoretical explanation of the plasmonic properties.
