Solvent-induced division of plasmonic clusters

Author affiliations


The dimensions of spherical plasmonic clusters strongly depend on the concentration of their building blocks. We show here that for binary clusters consisting of nanoparticle building blocks with different sizes and relative content, the overall size of the clusters remains constant. However, in the presence of a good solvent the clusters undergo fission to produce smaller units with homogenously distributed building blocks.
