About this collection

We are delighted to share with you a selection of the papers which will be presented at our Faraday Discussion on Hot-electron science and microscopic processes in plasmonics and catalysis taking place in London, UK in February 2019. More information about the event may be found here: http://rsc.li/plasmonics-fd2019. Additional articles will be added to the collection as they are published. The final versions of all the articles presented and a record of the live discussions will be published after the event.

Over the last decade, plasmonics research has emerged as an extremely promising technology with potential applications in information technologies, energy, high-density data storage, photovoltaics, chemistry, biology, medicine, security and sensing. Sensing, where the intense nanoscale light fields around metallic nanostructures have been utilized for surface-enhanced spectroscopies of molecules, has received particular attention.

Until quite recently the main research focus has been on the ability of plasmonic nanostructures to generate localized regions of highly concentrated electromagnetic fields. Lately it has been realized that the electron part of plasmonic excitations can also be exploited in the physical and chemical sciences. Proof-of-concept applications have shown fascinating applications in areas such as surface-enhanced catalysis (water splitting), photodetectors without bandgaps (Schottky junctions), and nanoscale control over chemical reactions. Meanwhile, theoretical understanding about the generation, transport and extraction of plasmonic hot carriers has also advanced.

This Faraday Discussion presents an unprecedented opportunity to discuss the most recent breakthroughs in this multidisciplinary and emerging field from the perspectives of physicists, chemists and theoreticians. It will allow connections to be made between sub-disciplines, enabling the most challenging problems for the future to be defined, and providing a point of reference for the future development of plasmonics, catalysis, and hot-electron science more generally.
