Optical properties of metallic nanoparticles: manipulating light, heat and forces at the nanoscale

Author affiliations

Abstract

We present to a general readership an overview of the rich variety of phenomena and applications that arise from the interaction of metallic nanoparticles with light. First, we present the fundamental physics of localized surface plasmon resonances, the most relevant theories and numerical methods, as well as optical detection schemes. Finally, we explain how the localized surface plasmon resonances are currently exploited for the nanoscale manipulation of light, heat and forces in various applications and experimental investigations.
