Guest editors Luis Liz-Marzán, Catherine Murphy and Jianfang Wang introduce the Nanoplasmonics themed issue of Chemical Society Reviews.
Optical absorption and scattering spectroscopies of single nano-objects
This review focuses on optical detection and spectroscopy of single nano-objects for nanophysics investigation.
Self-assembled plasmonic nanostructures
This review highlights recent advances in the field of self-assembled plasmonic nanostructures, their optical properties and applications.
New materials for tunable plasmonic colloidal nanocrystals
We present a review on the emerging materials for novel plasmonic colloidal nanocrystals.
Mapping plasmons at the nanometer scale in an electron microscope
EELS and cathodoluminescence are highly relevant tools to map plasmons within metallic nanoparticles much smaller than the wavelength of light.
Heavily-doped colloidal semiconductor and metal oxide nanocrystals: an emerging new class of plasmonic nanomaterials
A new class of plasmonic nanomaterials, based upon heavily-doped semiconductors and metal oxides, is rapidly developing and showing great promise for biomedical and optoelectronic applications.
Nanoplasmonics for chemistry
We discuss how nanoplasmonics can benefit chemistry and review the most recent developments in this new and fast growing field of research.
Probing subdiffraction limit separations with plasmon coupling microscopy: concepts and applications
This Tutorial Review introduces the concept of distance dependent plasmon coupling and its application in biosensing and imaging.
Engineering plasmonic metal colloids through composition and structural design
This Tutorial Review examines the effects of composition, particle size and shape, overall architecture, and local environment on the optical properties of metal colloids.
Plasmonic nanomaterials for biodiagnostics
We discuss plasmonic nanomaterials as biodiagnostic tools, and how their properties yield tunable optical signals and surface enhanced Raman signals.
Super-resolution imaging of SERS hot spots
Super-resolution imaging defeats the diffraction-limit of light, allowing the spatial origin and intensity of SERS signals to be determined with <5 nm resolution.
About this collection
Nanoplasmonics concerns light-matter interactions with nanoscale materials. This Chemical Society Reviews themed issue, guest edited by Luis Liz-Marzan, Catherine Murphy and Jianfang Wang, covers all chemical aspects of the field, from synthesis and fabrication to plasmon-enhanced effects in physical and biological systems.
